Jurgen Klopp's side faced Patrick Vieira's Crystal Palace on matchday two, with the result looking better for the Eagles after Darwin Nunez's 57th-minute dismissal and Luis Diaz's goal, some players played down the Uruguayan's first-time offence and praised the Colombian for his heroics.

Nunez was trying to get Liverpool's equaliser against Crystal Palace at Anfield, but he let himself be provoked by his opponent and made it difficult for his team, which was reduced to 10 men. In the 57′ minute, during a dangerous play, Joachim Andersen started to bother the Uruguayan player and pushed him. The recent signing of the squad led by Jurgen Kloop headbutted him. The Eagles player fell to the turf and the referee saw the action, who gave Nunez a red card.

"I am aware of the ugly attitude I had. I'm here to learn from my mistakes and it won't happen again," the Uruguayan wrote on his official Twitter account after the sending-off that led to an incident with defender Andersen in the 1-1 draw at Anfield.

Words from his team

Both vice-captain James Milner and German manager Jurgen Klopp told a postmatch press conference at Anfield that they failed to see Nunez's altercation with Joachim , and while they rejected all violence in football and think the new reinforcement did wrong, they played down the incident in the match.

"It was the wrong reaction in the situation. Andersen wanted that, I would say, and he got it. But he made a mistake, Darwin, so of course we'll talk about it. But not yet," he said. "A little provocation here and there - and definitely the wrong reaction. A clear red card, I can't deny it. Yes, he will learn from it. Unfortunately, he now has a few games to do so. That's not right for us in our particular situation, even less so, but that's the way it is," Klopp added.
