Two late goals by Alejandro Pozuelo gave Toronto FC a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Fire in MLS play Saturday, snapping TFC's six-game winless streak.
The Eagles defender was headbutted by Darwin Nunez, who was red-carded by referee Paul Tierney and now faces a three-match ban for violent conduct. "Got maybe 300-400 of these messages last night," the Dane posted to his Instagram story. A Premier League spokesman confirmed the governing body had been in touch with Palace on Tuesday morning to offer help.
The Palace defender, on the receiving end of a Darwin Nunez headbutt, received abusive messages after the 1-1 draw at Liverpool.
