Jurgen Klopp said he was proud of Liverpool for holding out for a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday despite being reduced to 10 men after Darwin Nunes was sent off.

Forward Luis Diaz canceled out Wilfried Zaha’s goal in the Palace goal. Nunes was sent off for a headbutt on his home debut.

“After the game I told the boys I was proud,” Klopp told reporters.

“I thought the start (of the second half) was positive again and then the red card happened. But obviously the best possible reaction (Diaz) then is a worldly, wonderful goal.

“And from that point it was a special game,” he said, adding that he was pleased with how much pressure they put on 10-man Palace.

Nunes was shown a straight red card in the 57th minute for his reaction to a push on Palace defender Joachim Anderson, and Klopp said the Uruguay international needed to learn from his mistake, which is likely to lead to a three-match ban.

“A little provocation here and there – and definitely the wrong reaction. A clean red card, I can’t deny that. He will learn from this,” said Klopp.

“Unfortunately, he now has a few games to do that.

“Andersen wanted it, I would say, and he got it. But he made a mistake, Darwin, so of course we’ll talk about it.’

Liverpool, who are in 12th place after drawing their opening two games, next travel to Old Trafford to face bottom club Manchester United.
