A frustrating first half saw Liverpool concede before the break, after dominating for the entirety.

Liverpool needed to come out in the second half with a much more clinical edge, however, things went from bad to worse for The Reds in the 57th minute, as new signing Darwin Nunez had a moment of madness.

The Uruguayan reacted to Joachim Anderson pushing him in the back by headbutting the Crystal Palace defender.

The incident angered Jurgen Klopp and wasn’t helped when the striker refused to come off quickly.
