Liverpool has been in good form since the start of the season, winning many games in reverse order despite losing the first goal, but they have been at a standstill in their last two games.
Against Tottenham, Liverpool was also dismayed by a poor decision, conceding a last minute goal and surrendering all the points.
In the last game against Brighton, despite being down a goal first due to a mistake in the build-up, they managed to come back with two goals from “ace” Mohamed Salah.
In the second half, they had a chance to score a third goal, but failed to do so, and in the 78th minute, a goal was scored from a free kick, and the two teams shared the points.
With only one point from two games, Liverpool’s alumnus Jamie Carragher said that with their current lineup, it will be difficult to win the Premier League title, and called for further reinforcements in the midfield and defense.
“Whether they can go on and win the biggest trophy which is the Premier League I think that will be tough,
“I think that could be something Liverpool could go for next season with a couple more additions.”
“I think Liverpool lack a top central midfield player and maybe another defender. Those gaps will be plugged whether that is in January or in the summer – I think they will be better equipped next season to go for the Premier League.”
The rough and tumble Tottenham game left a strong impression that they were beaten by the referees, and Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota were suspended, fueled by that decision.
Cody Gakpo, who suffered an injury in the same match, is also out, and the inability to make changes in the front line, which was ineffective, also seems to be a factor in the draw against Brighton.
Not everything seems to be in the midfield or the final line, but an increase in strength is inevitable if the team is to make it through the long season.
We will not be influenced by what the former Liverpool defender has to say, but what kind of reinforcement plans will be developed in the transfer market this winter and next summer?
