Virgil van Dijk said new Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez must learn to “control himself” after being sent off for a reckless headbutt during yesterday’s 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace.

The 23-year-old Uruguayan, who signed from Benfica in June, was shown a straight red card in the 57th minute at Anfield for his foul on Joachim Andersen and will serve a three-match ban.

Colombia’s Luis Diaz scored a brilliant equalizer after Liverpool was reduced to 10 men to cancel out Wilfried Zaha’s first-half opener.

But the draw meant more dropped points for Jurgen Klopp’s team, who have just two points after their first two matches of the Premier League season.
