” I can not keep in mind a time with many players out of kind at the very same time,” stated Carragher to Sky Sports.
” Think of the front 3 and the full-backs in terms of offering quality and assists, things we have seen so frequently. All 5 of them are no place near their finest. It is not just scoring but it is basic play.
” Mo Salah comes on and is one on one against the left-back 3 or 4 times and simply runs directly at him.
” I think Liverpool supporters will be enormously annoyed. This team have done something for this club that nobody has provided for so long– brought a title back. They will constantly be legends in everybody’s eyes.”
Given that their 7-0 win against Crystal Palace, Liverpool (and the front 3 integrated) have actually managed just one goal in the Premier League.
Nevertheless, a case can be made that without the presence of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho in the middle, Liverpool are having a hard time to play their regular high-tempo game.
The full-backs, as a result, are having a hard time to make an effect. Alexander-Arnold attempted 22 crosses last night, however just one managed to discover the best gamer.
