FURIOUS Darwin Nunez sensationally lost his cool by headbutting Joachim Andersen TWICE on his full Premier League debut – right in front of the referee.
The £85million Liverpool striker was rightfully sent off for his horrible assault on the Crystal Palace centre-half.
Andersen and Nunez tussled off the ball in the Eagles’ area ten minutes into the second half when the Uruguayan put his head flicked his head back towards his opponent.
And then as the ball was cleared, Andersen gave the Liverpool record signing a shove in the back as referee Paul Tierney kept a close eye on the pair.
Then the red mist descended for Nunez as he turned and lamped the Dane with a sudden forehead on his chin in a disgusting act of violence.
The fuming forward incredibly squared up to Tierney after the ref brandished the red card.

James Milner, captain for the night, ran over to the scene to try and calm his raging team-mate down before he eventually relented and headed down the tunnel in front of a shocked Anfield.
It completed a nightmare home debut after he missed two glorious chances to score in the first half.
The first saw him completely miscue a volley well off target.
And then he scuffed the ball as it sat up nicely for him – but it bounced against the far post.

Fans piled in on the 23-year-old after his nightmare evening at Anfield as he became only the second Liverpool player sent off on his home league debut since Joe Cole in 2010.
One person said: “Darwin Nunez worst home debut ever seen.”
Another added: “This has been an all-time top 3 worst individual performances in the history of the Premier League by Darwin Nunez. Stinking.”
Luis Diaz rescued a point for Liverpool as his sweet strike, minutes after Jurgen Klopp’s side went down to ten men, cancelled out Wilfried Zaha’s cool finish.
Nunez will certainly face a three-match ban for the sending off – ruling him out of Monday’s trip to bottom-club Manchester United.
The Reds then face Bournemouth and Newcastle before the end of August.
