Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool FC will fail to retain the Premier League title unless Jurgen Klopp signs a new centre-half in the January transfer window. The defending Premier League champions extended their winless run to three games.
The Reds are still sitting at the top of the Premier League table but level on points with Manchester United. Liverpool FC are currently without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip to leave the German coach with no senior centre-half in the Reds squad.
Sky Sports pundit Carragher believes that Liverpool FC needs to sign a centre-half in January if the Reds are serious about retaining their Premier League crown.
“I can’t see Liverpool winning the league if they don’t buy a centre-back,” Carragher told Sky Sports. “I said that after the Everton game when (Virgil) van Dijk was injured but I think it’s a really tough ask if they don’t bring anyone in.
“The fact they played Jordan Henderson at centre-back is not going to do a lot for the two lads on the bench (Rhys Williams and Nathaniel Phillips) and their confidence if they have two midfielders playing there. Henderson is not a centre-back. He did well, but it’s not his position.”
