Jamie Carragher explains the biggest problem with Liverpool

Klopp Scouse Lesson

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher isn't holding back here, is he!

Anfield legend Jamie Carragher has revealed the problem with Liverpool after their 1-0 defeat at the hands of bitter rivals Manchester United. Despite dominating for most of the game, Jurgen Klopp's side were unable to beat the in-form David de Gea, with the Spaniard producing four vitals saves.

With Klopp deciding to once again leave £32.5million summer flop Christian Benteke on the bench in favour of Roberto Firmino, many wondered where exactly a reliable source of goals would come from.

And one of those who was worried was ex-Liverpool vice-captain, Jamie Carragher.

Speaking on Sky Sports before the game, Carragher shared what he believes is the major problem with Liverpool and was quoted by the Express as saying: "Before the game you were thinking who would get the goals for Liverpool, it’s been a problem all season.

"Which midfielders are going to score? The chance Lallana had probably summed up his Liverpool career, he hasn’t scored since May, he’s a £25m signing, an attacking midfielder.

"Milner, Henderson and Can had chances, and it’s been a major problem."

During the defeat to United, all four of Liverpool's saved shots came from their midfield, with them having another seven shots that were either blocked or sent into the stands.

So far this season Liverpool's midfielders have scored nine goals, with five of those coming from the currently injured Philippe Coutinho, two for James Milner and one each for Jordan Henderson and Joe Allen.

Is Jamie Carragher right about Liverpool's midfield?
