Liverpool are the Premier League holders but their title defence has not gone as planned. Liverpool were strong contenders for the Premier League title until December when everything fell apart for manager Jurgen Klopp and his players.

After the thumping 7-0 victory at the home of Crystal Palace in December, Liverpool embarked on a wretched run that brought just two wins until penultimate Monday when the Reds beat Wolves 1-0 away from home.

NO MORE VAN DIJK EXCUSE – CARRAGHER

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has revealed that the Reds can't continue to make the Virgil Van Dijk excuse for a poor season in the Premier League. Liverpool have been very poor in the past two months in the league thereby wasting the opportunity to defend their title. Jamie Carragher and other Liverpool fans were in cloud nine last summer as the Reds ended their long wait for a league title. Liverpool had not won a league title for three decades until last summer when that title drought ended. Liverpool started the season well and were at the top of the table for long periods even after the unfortunate Virgil Van Dijk injury during the Merseyside Derby in October 2020. The Reds were at the summit for several weeks before they imploded in recent weeks.

CARRAGHER ADVICES KLOPP TO REPLACE THIS LIVERPOOL MAN

Former Liverpool player and current Sky Sport pundit Jamie Carragher has urged Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to source for a direct replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum who is expected to leave Anfield in the summer. The Netherlands international midfielder has refused to sign a new contract at Liverpool and has set his sights on a move to Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona.


Carragher has now come out to advice manager Klopp that he should act quickly in replacing one of his most important players who now has just a short time to spend at the club. According to Carragher, Liverpool should be looking to make as many as three new signings in the summer so they can cover up for the struggles they have had to face so far this season.
