News Sports: Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez made an eventful Anfield debut against Crystal Palace on Monday. Klopp added the Uruguay international to his starting XI for the first time this season “because there are no other strikers”, but a rare misjudgment saw him play for less than an hour. Wilfred Zaha Frustrations set in for Liverpool in his 1–0 draw after a goal from . Nunez headbutted Joachim Andersen in his 56th minute and was sent off, no different than when Zinedine headbutted his Zidane in his 2006 World Cup final.

Despite being behind at the Reds’ point, Liverpool dominated the game and it felt like a turnaround was in the cards in the second half. They had to settle for a 1-1 draw in their first home game of the season. As a result, the Reds have dropped points in the first two games of the season and are already four behind Manchester City in the Premier League title race. With Roberto Firmino not selected and Diogo Jota struggling with injuries sustained last season, Diaz had to play as a makeshift forward to keep things going.

Liverpool responded and equalized in the 61st minute with Diaz’s superb solo his shot, but it wasn’t enough to clinch the win. All of Liverpool’s attack flowed through Diaz, who created chances with his dribbling, but Palace’s defense was strong and the team nearly scored the winner through Wilfred Zaha. After the match, Zaha said the chance came too early and he couldn’t grab it with his left foot. It’s hard for Palace not to be happy with the way things are going. USA international Chris Richards arrived in a pressure cooker for his debut at Anfield Road to the relief of Tyrick Mitchell, who was holding off Mohamed Salah. The Reds threw everything forward while Richards kept order, blocked shots, and won all four aerial duels.
