Liverpool lost 2-1 to Leeds and are ninth in the Premier League; it was Jurgen Klopp’s side 2d consecutive defeat in the league; Jamie Carragher: “This is not a blip for Liverpool, this is a serious problem”
Jamie Carragher says Liverpool “have large problems” after their 2-1 defeat to Leeds United, whilst Graeme Souness believes Jurgen Klopp’s side are now “getting bullied” via other teams.
Crysencio Summerville’s 89th-minute strike clinched a 2-1 win for Leeds at Anfield, leaving Klopp’s beleaguered side in ninth place and eight points off the top four.
Mohamed Salah had until now cancelled out Rodrigo’s fourth-minute opener following a shielding mix-up between Alisson and Joe Gomez, however Liverpool could not find a way past the excellent Illan Meslier, who made a record-equalling complete of 9 saves.
“It’s a huge result for Leeds but Liverpool have got massive problems,” said Carragher on Saturday Night Football.
“Leeds’ fans know how big a result this is. It’s so long since anyone’s won at Anfield. They’re going to milk it and rightly so. It will do wonders for them, in terms of the league table.
“This isn’t a blip for Liverpool, this is a serious problem.
“There’s no doubt that the goalkeeper in the last 10-15 minutes has kept Leeds in it but if you look at the whole game you can’t say Leeds haven’t deserved to get something from it. They’ve been fantastic.
