Jamie Carragher believes Jurgen Klopp has made tactical oversights at Liverpool

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Jurgen Klopp should make some tactical changes to the way he is setting up his side and “bring an extra attacking player in”.

The Reds are currently sixth in the Premier League and five points off the top four after losing 2-0 to Everton on Saturday, the first time the Toffees have beaten Liverpool at Anfield in the league for 22 years.

With Klopp’s side in a battle to make the top four, Carragher explained that “a tweaking of the system” may “help them going forward.”

Speaking on Sky Sports Monday Night Football, Carragher said: “With Jurgen Klopp, we’ll talk about maybe doing something different.

“I do think there could be a tweaking of the system. Maybe 4-2-3-1, bring an extra attacking player in, because Liverpool are struggling to create and score goals.

“Defensively now I think, is there a case of actually putting Liverpool 10 yards further back. Liverpool never played this high when Jurgen Klopp first came in, when they had Kolo Toure, they had Sakho, Skrtel, Lovren. They still pressed.

“It may be a case of that because of this high line at the moment, Kabak is struggling early on in his Liverpool career.

“Ben Davies may come in, Nat Phillips is going to play, they need a bit more help and a bit more protection. I think that could help them going forward.”

Carragher also said that Liverpool’s injury problems at the back “does not mean they can’t win home games against Everton, Brighton, Burnley, West Brom.”

He added: “Liverpool can’t win the league, I said that after the last derby game, they can’t win the league with Van Dijk being out for the whole season, I didn’t feel.

“That’s the bigger picture but the problems Liverpool have, whether the defenders are out, the midfielders are at centre-back, that does not mean they can’t win home games against Everton, Brighton, Burnley, West Brom.

Manchester United, maybe, Manchester City, real top quality, but it’s not an excuse for individual games. No matter what problem you have as a Liverpool player, you can’t not win at home for six games, that’s not acceptable. It’s not.

“When I think of situations I’ve been in, I’ve played in teams not as good as this one, but you find a way to win. We beat Everton twice with 10-men when it was 0-0, so there’s something now where they’ve got to find a way to win.”
