With Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are all sidelined for lengthy periods of time, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have been filling the void left by the defenders. However, it was just a matter of time before the duo got injured and Liverpool began to loose points. The club captain is due to undergo an adductor surgery while the Brazilian is back in the team nevertheless.
Carragher on his recent interview with Sky Sports regarding the Liverpool situation stated, “Goals, massively. They don’t look like scoring. It’s not just the games in which they haven’t scored – you never even feel like the goals are coming. With 20 minutes to go, you don’t really feel like Liverpool are going to score a goal.”
The 43-years old also conveyed, “The front six at this moment are not looking dangerous enough and there’s no-one really out injured too much. You could say Fabinho and Jordan Henderson are missing in midfield but they’re more defensive players. That’s the real worry for me going forward – where the goals are going to come from next season.”
Defending champions failing to defend the title
The last year’s defending champions Liverpool are placed seventh in the points table now. With the decrease in their scoring rate, the Merseyside reds have found going a little too hard lately. Winning just four games out of the last ten games played, Jamie thinks it is finally a time to look into the sectors Liverpool needs to improve. Liverpool set to play 18th placed Fulham at Anfield up next on Sunday.
