Darwin Nunez, Liverpool’s summer signing, will miss the next three Premier League games after being sent off in Monday’s draw with Crystal Palace.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool were held by Crystal Palace at Anfield on Monday night after dropping points against Fulham in their opener. Darwin Nunez, the Reds’ new striker, was shown a straight red card in the game after headbutting Palace defender Joachim Andersen, and will miss the Reds’ next three games. With Klopp also dealing with an injury crisis that kept the likes of Ibrahima Konate and Joel Matip out on Monday, the upcoming trip to Manchester United appears to be a test. Here are the most recent Anfield news stories. Liverpool’s lack of options may force Jurgen Klopp to call on Fabio Carvalho sooner than expected, according to Klopp’s prediction. Jurgen Klopp’s comments about the former Fulham youngster have been very encouraging, but they could be tested as early as Monday. Diogo Jota missed the first two games of the season due to injury, and Nunez will now join him on the sidelines due to a three-match ban for violent conduct. If Roberto Firmino is unable to play due to injury, Carvalho could be thrown in at the deep end. “He is ready in the same way that Harvey [Elliott] is in a similar age group,” Klopp insisted. “That’s fantastic. We all need luck in life with injuries and other things like this, but even without it, he will be a valuable player for us.” Read the entire story here.

Salah has given to charity on a regular basis throughout his career, recently giving away an estimated £2.5 million according to the Sunday Times’ 2022 charitable list. According to Egyptian media, his donation to the church is worth just under £130,000. “Salah put his small village on the international map,” said Maher Shetia, mayor of Salah’s hometown Nagrig, of the 30-year-donations old’s to aid efforts in the small town in the country’s north. His donations in Nagrig, which total an estimated £400,000, include the construction of a school and the provision of hospital equipment. Read the entire story here. Nunez expresses regret. Darwin Nunez has apologized for his dismissal during Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace. It was only the second red card of his career, and his first since he was playing in Spain for Almeria. “I am aware of my obnoxious attitude. I’m here to learn from my mistakes and it won’t happen again,” the Uruguayan international wrote. “Apologies to Liverpool all. I’ll be back.” “He is going to be disappointed in that,” teammate James Milner said after the incident. “We have to get around him and rally. He will learn from it.” Read More
