Liverpool manager Klopp: Darwin Nunez was provoked for red-card
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Darwin Nunez was provoked before his red-card against Crystal Palace.
Down 1-0 at home, Nunez headbutted Joachim Andersen after he was shoved by Palace defender.
Luis Diaz scored an equaliser four minutes later to secure a point for the Reds.
"It was a really good start, exactly what we wanted, showing a lot of desire, it was all there," Klopp told Sky Sports.
"We were then unlucky in situations. The game plan for Palace was obviously to have five at the back, get men behind the ball and go for the counter attack. It is difficult with speed of Zaha.
"The second half again started positive, but getting the red card was a knockback. Of course it was a red, he was provoked but that is not how he should behave.
"Then we equalise four mins later. With 10 men, putting in such an effort. My real feeling now is that I am proud."
