Carragher bashes ‘shocking’ Liverpool

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has slammed the Reds’ defence after their 3-1 defeat to Leicester City on Monday night.

Foxes striker Jamie Vardy netted a brace and Danny Drinkwater produced a terrific strike to see the hosts claim their first victory since sacking Claudio Ranieri.

Carragher laid into Reds boss Jurgen Klopp for his tactics on the night and claimed that they will not win anything if they continue to defend the way they have this season.

"Liverpool were shocking tonight, I was at the games at Hull and Burnley and they were the exact same games," Carragher told Sky Sports. "They're on course to concede 50 goals again this season and Klopp hasn't rectified that.

"There's no way you are going to win anything conceding that amount of goals, it's just impossible to do that.

"My other problem is Liverpool always play the same way, and I said it again before the match. What's wrong with Liverpool going to a side like Leicester and saying, 'Let Wes Morgan and Robert Huth have the ball, we know Vardy wants to spin in behind. We can hit you on the break with Sadio Mane.'

"It's always the same thing that happens for Liverpool — it was [Burnley's Andre] Gray and [Hull's Oumar] Niasse before and Vardy tonight — I just don't know why it hasn't changed.

"There's no difference in tactics, there's not a different plan for certain games. I think Klopp has far too much faith in certain players. He has to make changes in the summer."
