“They didn’t fix the problems they needed to in the summer": Jamie Carragher slams Liverpool after Newcastle draw
“It sums Liverpool up defensively. In total control and they concede yet again. How many times have we got to say it?
“A lack of concentration has cost Liverpool yet again and whenever they concede chances they are always big chances.
“When you are defending you have to be really aggressive, but when you are on the ball you have to be composed. Liverpool don’t switch quick enough between the two.
“You do think, where would Liverpool be without Philippe Coutinho right now?
“Do I think Liverpool are a genuine title challenger this season? No. The summer transfer window did not go well for them.
“They didn’t fix the problems they needed to in the summer.”
Carragher also highlighted the disappointing performance of Daniel Sturridge, who was given the nod ahead of Roberto Firmino at St James’ Park.
“His chance, if that was Kane, if that was Morata or Lukaku, that’s a goal and they are coming away with a 2-1 win.”
“If Firmino is playing well Daniel Sturridge doesn’t start today. He hasn’t been a starter in 2 years under Klopp.”
