Luis Suarez sends warning to Darwin Nunez after his red card during dismal Anfield debut
| Last updated
Nunez had a torrid home debut for the Reds as he spurned two huge chances in the first half, a half which saw Palace stun Liverpool after an expertly crafted counter attack was finished off by Wilfried Zaha.
In the second half, the red mist descended on Nunez as he lost his cool after being well handled by defender Joachim Andersen, the Uruguayan head-butted the Palace man and was subsequently shown a red card.

A few days on from the incident, Suarez has now lent a word of advice for Liverpool’s £64 million summer signing.
He said during an interview with Telemundo: “Because he is just starting out and to make him aware that from now on [opponents] will be seeking him out twice or three times more often.
“Even more so in England, he’s hearing this from an idiot who make mistakes and suffered for them, but falling down and getting up again made me stronger.”
The former Barcelona striker then warned Nunez that things could get worse if he is not careful in the future.
Suarez added: “Don’t give them any more chances, it’ll only get worse.
“Darwin is someone who listens a lot. He is very smart that way and I think he will try to turn this situation around, it’s not a big deal, we have all made mistakes, we have all been sent off.
“The problem is that he’s only just arrived over there and in England, to put it lightly, they make a big deal out of everything.”
Suarez was a fans’ favourite during his time as a Liverpool player, as his superb skills and eye for goal made him one of the best players to ever play in the Premier League.
He almost single handedly won the title for Liverpool in the 13/14 season but they lost out to Manchester City after a major slip up towards the back end of the season.
Suarez eventually left Liverpool for Barcelona in the summer of 2014, he went on to form one of the world’s best ever front threes alongside Neymar and Lionel Messi. Now at the age of 35, he is playing for Nacional in his home country of Uruguay.
As for Nunez, he will now miss Liverpool's next three games, against Manchester United, Bournemouth and Newcastle United.
