Darwin Nunez red card: What matches will the Liverpool striker miss after brutal headbutt against Crystal Palace

Liverpool man Darwin Nunez’s Premier League home debut didn’t go how he might have envisioned it.

The 23-year-old striker missed two golden chances in the first half before the red mist descended, and he was sent off for headbutting Joachim Andersen.

The Uruguayan initially tried to flick his head at the Dane before then turning around and thundering his head into Andersen’s nose.

Paul Tierney was looking directly at the incident and had no choice but to dismiss Nunez.

Liverpool are currently without Diogo Jota, while Roberto Firmino wasn’t fit enough to face Palace, and Jurgen Klopp will be without his new record striker for the next three league games as well.

Nunez will miss Liverpool’s away trip to Manchester United, which is live on talkSPORT.

Both sides are yet to win a game this season, but Nunez won’t be at Old Trafford.

He will also miss two home matches against Bournemouth and Newcastle United at the very least.

The ban could be extended due to the severity of the incident, and Nunez will have to quickly learn that you can’t do this on the football field.

Games Nunez will miss

Manchester United (A) – August 22

Bournemouth (H) – August 27

Newcastle United (H) – August 31
