Harvey Elliot described what happened in the Liverpool dressing room after Darwin Nunez was sent off in his debut at Anfield.
Liverpool have had a slow start to their Premier League campaign after earning only two points in two games. The Reds crossed swords with Crystal Palace on Monday in a match that could have gone Jurgen Klopp’s way.
Patrick Vieira’s side managed to not let Liverpool break their defence on many occasions handing them a point each. Darwin Nunez made his Anfield debut as he started the game but could not get his name on the sheet.

Amid the match, Nunez was unable to get his name on the sheet and instead was given the red card. Nunez was sent off for having made an indefensible head-butt on Joachim Andersen which made him see the red.
Moreover, many have argued that the red card costed Liverpool the three points they could have earned this match. Harvey Elliot spoke with LFCTV and gave an insight into the dressing room scene after the red card incident.
“It’s not his fault to be honest because we conceded the goal in the first half which put us in that situation.
For him its a learning curve and for the team its our fault as well, its not just him, it’s everyone’s fault,”
“We’re instantly around him trying to lift him up. Obviously he’s very down in the changing room feeling sorry for the team and thinking its his fault, which it’s not, it’s all of our faults.
It’s not singlehandedly him it’s us as a collective, so we’re there for him.”
While Nunez must make sure this does not happen again, it is important for his teammates to lift him up.
