Luis Diaz's brilliant solo effort for the equaliser against Crystal Palace at Anfield came moments after Jurgen Klopp's side had been reduced to 10 men after Darwin Nunez was sent off for a header on Joachim Andersen.

The German coach indicated that of course I will talk to Nunez, although after seeing the situation in the match he only saw Andersen on the ground and Darwin walking away, which he thought was a collision, then he asked his players if it was a red card and realised the situation.

Klopp's words

"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.
