Summary: Liverpool - Crystal Palace 1:1 (Sport1)

It should have been a pretty comfortable start to the season for Liverpool.

Opening round in the Premier League against the newcomer Fulham, about a week later the first home game against Crystal Palace, whom they beat in all their last ten matches in the Premier League, and all this after 1:3 against Manchester City in the Community Shield.



But in football, as everyone knows, what exists on paper does not necessarily happen.

Liverpool messed up 2:2 against Fulham and last night (Monday) their winning streak against Crystal Palace was also stopped with a 1:1 home draw and even more maddening and the gap from Manchester City is already four points.



If that's not enough, Darwin Nunes, in his debut at Anfield and in the squad, made a number of misses in the box and, above all, was sent off with a completely unnecessary red card following a hit on the opponent Joachim Andersen's brake and will now also be absent from the upcoming match against arch rival Manchester United.

Coach Jürgen Klopp actually tried to encourage the fans and the players when he said at the end: "It was a good performance by us. If you consider everything that happened to us this week, we still came up with a good team and we also responded in a wonderful way to the deficit we fell into. The fans were there for us and the players put all their hearts on the grass , so there's no reason to be disappointed despite the result. These are things I don't take for granted - everything went against us this week...it's like there's a witch in our complex."



When asked about the red card received by Nunes, Klopp considered his words: "I would have been happy to tell him even before the suspension that it was something that could happen. Now we will have to manage without him for three games and we have the time to talk about him about such cases. He knows that he has let his teammates down and he is not He did something we wanted to see from him, we also knew that the opposing players would make it difficult for him, but that's not how we wanted him to react to what the brakes would do to him. We won't punish him, but we'll use the time he's suspended to go through with him."



"We need to rally around Darwin Nunes," James Milner added in an attempt to defend the Uruguayan striker, "he will be very disappointed with what he did, but he will also learn from it. All in all, we responded well to the situation and the crowd was also behind us. The most important thing is that we played well and produced Situations - it's better than doing nothing, we just have to know how to take advantage of the opportunities."



In the "Daily Mail" it was even written about Nunes that "the 100 million euro striker fell into Palace's trap. He started for the first time in the lineup and after 57 minutes was sent off in a stupid act. He wanted to be compared to Luis Suarez in his first appearance at Anfield, but not in this context - precisely after he scored Three goals in two games and the expectations were in the sky, he suffered throughout the evening from the defensive players of Palace until he did not control himself. It seems that he is unable to connect with Mohamed Salah and the players around him in attack, unlike what is happening with Arling Holland at City."



Sky commentator Gary Neville did not feel sorry for Nunes and said: "It was a stupid act of his. A moment of madness. Nunes will learn from this, but Liverpool will miss him very much in the coming games. Sometimes we do things and don't understand why we do them."



"I don't believe he thought he would get out of this with nothing, he will be devastated by this in the dressing room. He has let the team and the fans down," criticized Jamie Cragger.

Klopp and Milner referred to the many situations the team reached, but even at the back Klopp and his apprentices have reason to worry.

Although the injured Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konata were not at Klopp's disposal, so Nathaniel Phillips started in the team, who made a mistake in the goal that the Mighty Reds conceded from Wilfried Zaha, but even with them the numbers speak for themselves: Liverpool conceded first in each of the last six league games, and fortunately managed to recover from losses in all of them (three wins and three draws).

Palace, by the way, are the first to lead at Anfield at halftime for the first time since Aston Villa in 2021.



"Liverpool has a wider squad than Manchester City and certainly with more depth, but the problems seem to make it very difficult," wrote journalist Samuel Luckhurst, who covers Manchester United for the "Manchester Evening News", "Klopp also surprised with the lineup And above all, it is very rare to see Virgil van Dijk so weak in several consecutive games."

In fact, this is the first time in 125 years that Liverpool has opened a season with two draws - and throughout history there have only been five teams that have managed to win the championship despite such an opening - Manchester United did it three times, Derby County won once and so did Arsenal.



And if there are any data: Mohamed Salah, who scored in all his seasons in Liverpool in the opening rounds of the season, also maintained the negative streak and he has not yet scored in the team's uniform in the second round.

He did create eight scoring chances for his teammates, the most in the league since United's Bruno Fernandes against Leicester in October 2021, but it wasn't enough.
