Carragher: Nunez let Liverpool and fans down

Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher says Darwin Nunez let the fans down with his red card last night.

Nunez was sent off for headbutting Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen during their 1-1 draw.

Carragher said, "I couldn't believe he was remonstrating to the referee. Andersen's not doing anything — he's just in a normal centre-back position.

"Look at Nunez, looking straight at the referee [beforehand] and complaining. It's not a foul [on Nunez]. I cannot believe he possibly thinks he's going to get away with that. The referee was looking straight at it; he could not have had a better view.

"He's trying to argue he hasn't done anything, trying to convince his team-mates and the crowd. As he walks away, he's realising what he's done. He'll be devastated in the dressing room: he's let his team and the fans down."
