WHAT HAPPENED? Darwin Nunez was sent off in the second half of Monday's clash with Crystal Palace for a headbutt on Joachim Andersen after the two had tussled in the box just moments earlier.


The dismissal proved to be the end of a miserable home debut for Nunez, who will now miss out on a clash with Manchester United this weekend due to suspension. Nunez's red card comes following a relatively hot start for the former Benfica star, who had scored in his first two competitive matches for the club.
