ANFIELD in Liverpool — Liverpool’s slow start to the Premier League season continued as they were held to 1-1 draw. That is, by Crystal Palace following a red card handed out to the summer arrival Darwin Nunez.

The Reds were already losing ground to title contenders Manchester City on the opening day of the season. Furthermore, dropped two points when they played to a spirited draw against the newly-promoted Fulham.

Their return to Anfield witnessed another slip-up which leaves them four points further behind Pep Guardiola’s champions. Exactly, after two games remaining.

It could, in all likelihood have been more difficult for the hosts. Beaten by a cool Wilfried Zaha goal, as we are talking about the hosts. That is, at the break of a half they had won.

Thus, The task was difficult due to Nunez’s insanity headbutt. Hence, against Joachim Andersen. For an early bath, being taken to the hospital. Something, which rightly led to him.

Then, a stunning Luis Diaz solo goal salvaged. Obviously, one goal for Jurgen Klopp’s team. That is, in the second period. However, it’s not something the manager will cherish.

No excuse for Nunez after headbutt madness:

It’s tempting to refer to the headbutt. Something, that resulted in his red card as one of pure madness. However, that would ignore the fact that Nunez Uruguayan only came into contact with Andersen. That is, on the second occasion. In an all-inclusive Premier League debut for his new club at Anfield Nunez. He lost his wits in an unimaginable manner as he headed at his opponent two times quickly. That also, with the referee Paul Tierney close by.

However, if he was feeling regret when his red card first displayed will only get worse. Determined, and motivated obviously as his team members. That is, to win in the final minutes. Even, though they were numerically behind. However, The Reds probably would have prevailed had they not been in such a position for so long. The team’s major summer purchase should be mindful of when the time comes. Ironically, That you need to be cool during a difficult game.

Does it? Is the Premier League title race over already?

It’s absurd to think that something has been settled. Precisely, just two games into the start of a brand new Premier League season.

However, that doesn’t mean Manchester City’s lead of four points over their long-running title-chasing rivals isn’t an enormous advantage. Thus, regardless of the season. Both teams consistently scored over 90 points in order to pass these silverware pieces. Specifically, in recent seasons. Since, they rarely fail to make mistakes.

So that, whether two games are played or out. Liverpool have already given themselves a hill to climb in the hopes of regaining their dominance Pep Guardiola’s squad.

Luis Diaz delivers again for Jurgen Klopp:

Sadio Mane’s stint of six months as a centre-forward. Prior to leaving Liverpool has led to Nunez being widely touted as his replacement. But , in reality that the Senegalese has only been pushed out of his left-wing position in the last season. Due to the impressive appearance of January’s signing Luis Diaz.

One of the most positives for the Reds in a gloomy night. Hence, the Colombian proved that he stands every chance to keep his excellent start to the season. Thus, by scoring a stunning strike that won him a piece of the rewards. No matter what the rest of the season will bring for Klopp’s team. Obviously, Diaz is certain to play a significant role.
