Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes the club needs to sign a holding midfielder and defender if they are to challenge for the Premier League title.
Luton held the Reds to a 1-1 draw at Kenilworth Road on the weekend, with Jurgen Klopp’s visitors needing a 95th-minute equaliser from Luis Diaz to rescue a point.
Former defender Carragher said: “Liverpool are still not as effective at stopping counterattacks as Manchester City.
“Opponents do seem to find spaces a lot more to attack and get in behind Liverpool. Luton didn’t have the quality to defeat them, except for the goal we saw.
“Liverpool are not ready to win the league. Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool supporters know that at the moment.
“They want to get back into the top four. To be competitive again, I think they need a holding midfielder and a top-class defender.”
Same as Manchester United they aren’t yet, they need strong players to get back into competition.
