‘3 Yellow Card’ – Fans furious as Darwin Nunez avoided red card after blow away John Evans and mocked the referee in Man Utd’s draw over Liverpool


Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez risked a red card when he barged Manchester United defender Jonny Evans.

Nunez, 24, has established himself as one of the more chaotic centre-forwards in the Premier League. He never stops running, always gives 100% yet he can sometimes lose his focus, particularly in front of goal.

Darwin Nunez sarcastically clapped the referee after receiving a yellow card

However, he seemed to completely lose control when he suddenly barged Evans, seconds before the ball even got to the Northern Irishman.

A looping ball was sent towards the Uruguayan, who turned around and started running. Instead of running behind Evans, he threw himself into the ex-Leicester City defender, leaving him in a heap on the pitch.

After he clapped Oliver’s decision

When he was unsurprisingly given a yellow card by referee Michael Oliver after also kicking the ball away, the Uruguayan sarcastically appeared to clap the official. Considering this has sometimes resulted in a player being given two yellow cards in quick succession, Manchester United and Liverpool fans were stunned

Manchester United fans are furious that Darwin Nunez avoided an early red card in Sunday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool.

United fans claim the striker committed not one but three bookable offences in a matter of seconds and should have sent off.

“Darwin should’ve been shown a red there wtf,” posted one United fan on X.

Another added: “Darwin with 3 yellow card actions in 10 seconds but doesn’t get sent off. How?”

While a third wrote: “Three yellows for Nunez there, foul, booted ball away, shouted at lino.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool fans expressed their concern over Nunez’s behaviour in the early stages of the match.

“Darwin is a walking red today FFS,” posted one fan.

While another added: “Darwin red incoming unless he gets hooked at 58 mins.”

It has been another inconsistent campaign for Nunez, who remains Liverpool’s most expensive signing. He has contributed four goals and five assists in 15 Premier League appearances this season.

He has also helped himself to two goals and two assists in six appearances in the Europa League.
