Jamie Carragher puts Liverpool's improvement down to one thing

Pundits Jamie Carragher (L) and Gary Neville laugh prior to the Premier League match between West Ham United and Leicester City at London Stadium on November 24, 2017 in London, England.

Liverpool have been in superb form in recent weeks.

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher discussed the improvements made by Liverpool, and more specifically Jürgen Klopp this season, when speaking on Sky Sports Super Sunday, suggesting that the German has finally learned how to rotate properly.

The Reds currently sit in fourth position in the Premier League table, although they are a distant 14 points adrift of Pep Guardiola's rampant Manchester City side.

Liverpool have been breathtaking going forward this season, with the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane lighting up the league, but there are still nagging doubts regarding their weak back-line.

Credit where credit is due though, Klopp has certainly taken his side to another level this term, and Carragher, who made 739 appearances for the Merseyside outfit, highlighted squad rotation as the key factor behind that, as quoted by Sky Sports:

"I think the brilliant thing for Liverpool is that it's Jurgen Klopp's second full season in English football. January was a bit of a nightmare for Liverpool last season because of injuries, a loss of form and Sadio Mane going away. But this year he is rotating it much more - he's changing five or six players each game. That's not easy to get it right and it leaves you open to massive criticism. He's getting it right now - changing players at the right time."

Next up for Klopp and his Reds side is the Merseyside derby on Sunday, and they will have to be at their very best when Everton roll into town.

Toffees boss Sam Allardyce is notorious for making his teams hard to beat, and that will surely be no different at Anfield this weekend.
