At the Gtech Community Stadium, the team managed by Jurgen Klopp was defeated by Brentford. As a result, they failed to take advantage of an opportunity to rise up the table and are now ranked sixth in the Premier League. Their former defender believes that they have a long way to go before they can crack the top four.
Carragher said in an interview with Sky Sports that “it has been a motif of Liverpool all season.” “As soon as the difficulty level of the game increases, they are unable to keep up. They need to play a game that is played at a slower pace because as soon as the game picks up the pace, they are no longer competitive and they cannot keep up.
Throughout the whole season, Liverpool has struggled while playing opponents that are known for their tough play. Let us not forget that this is a squad that takes great satisfaction in claiming that our level of intensity is what defines us. They are reached a point where they are unable to deal with it anymore. It appears like an ageing squad that is nearing its end is competing.
Although Liverpool’s success has been built on their impressive recruitment, Carragher is frustrated that the problems in midfield have not been addressed, and he fears that as a result, they are turning into a team that he does not recognise.

“Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho are excellent technically, but they don’t appear like guys who would be coached by Jurgen Klopp. Fabinho is getting older. James Milner, Jordan Henderson does not possess the same level of energy that he formerly did.
“More than any other scouting or recruitment department in international football, the transfer committee and Jurgen Klopp have been praised for their work. They are to blame for this.
To enable a club that was battling for four trophies the previous season to be fighting for top four this season because the midfield has only had one signing in four years, it is clear that they are completely out of gas. How was it even possible for this to take place?
They have agreed to terms with Cody Gakpo. If Liverpool’s goal is to finish in the top four, they have little chance of doing so unless they make a midfielder acquisition during this transfer window.
When I watch Liverpool right now, especially in the middle of the field, I get the impression that Jurgen Klopp’s squad is transforming into a different entity.
“The only team it brings to mind is Arsenal, when I competed against them while Arsene Wenger was their manager.” Indeed, they were a very good football team during that time. But when it came down to their real pace and physicality, teams were unable to keep up. After then, that group transformed into something quite technical, but they were never able to win again.
“I don’t know whether there is an effect from Pep Lijnders, who is Klopp’s number two and has a large say in what goes on as well. Perhaps a Dutch style of thinking, putting players on the ball, and thinking that Liverpool has to constantly adjusting things because people are used to them.
“From the very first minute of Klopp’s tenure against Tottenham, it seemed like both teams were always racing around the field,” I said. When I don’t see Liverpool running and closing down opponents at this point in the game, and when they continue to play with this high line, it is almost as if they had a different team.
“I want to know why it isn’t a Jurgen Klopp team anymore because it isn’t,”
