‘This is a serious problem’ – Carragher opens up about Liverpool’s problems

Liverpool suffered a shock defeat to Leeds United and made it 2 consecutive losses to teams that currently sit in the relegation zone. It was Virgil Van Dijk’s first loss at Anfield in 70 games, and Liverpool’s cracks have started exposing themselves.

Liverpool’s Problems:

Klopps’ 7th season curse has struck again with Liverpool falling behind in the table with 2 consecutive losses. Speaking to Sky Sports, Carragher said, “It’s a huge result for Leeds but Liverpool have got massive problems. Leeds’ fans know how big a result this is. It’s so long since anyone’s won at Anfield. They’re going to milk it and rightly so. It will do wonders for them, in terms of the league table.”

“This isn’t a blip for Liverpool, this is a serious problem. There’s no doubt that the goalkeeper in the last 10-15 minutes has kept Leeds in it but if you look at the whole game you can’t say Leeds haven’t deserved to get something from it. They’ve been fantastic. Klopp must be thinking, what else can I try now, different permutations, formations, personnel.”

The defeat against Leeds was Liverpool’s first home defeat in 29 Premier League games and 19 months.
