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.”
