Jamie Carragher claims Liverpool have their solution to the Romelu Lukaku problem as they can stop the attacker with the help of Virgil va Dijk.
The Reds are set to face Thomas Tuchel’s side this weekend, with the Blues newcomer Lukaku likely to be included in the first-team squad. The Belgium international has already made his Chelsea debut and has already scored his first goal last Friday against Arsenal.
“The best way to describe Arsenal is they tried to play like Man City or Liverpool would do but they haven’t got the players,” Carragher said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.
“Liverpool won’t change for Chelsea but Van Dijk is the one player, certainly in the Premier League, who will fancy his chances up against Lukaku.
“It’s going to be a great battle but Liverpool, I have no doubt, will be looking to push up to the halfway line.
“What we saw yesterday from Lukaku doesn’t mean he’s going to do that to every defender.
“It was bad organisation. He’s a handful, he’s a top striker and he will score lots of goals but a lot of that was caused by Arsenal.”
