Jamie Carragher sends warning to Liverpool fans about Virgil van Dijk
Jamie Redknapp believes Liverpool can win the league with Coutinho and Van Dijk
13 August, 2017, 08:21
"Van Dijk better than [Lovren and Matip] and that's why he's [valued at] £50 or £60m, but it doesn't matter how good a centre-back is, they are being exposed".
Liverpool legend and former centre half Jamie Carragher has launched an all out assault on their defence, claiming no player on earth could improve it. I see Virgil van Dijk making a difference to the back four because he is a leader'.
Southampton defender Van Dijk has been linked with a move to the Reds throughout the summer and handed in a transfer request at St. Mary's on Monday.
And Carragher, speaking on Sky Sports, has noted that the 24-year-old's presence will help solve United's malaise in front of goal against lesser sides this season.
He added at full-time: 'Liverpool lose the ball and their centre backs are exposed, even if you have Franco Baresi there you are going to get exposed. Everyone has got their own individual job.
It takes their tally to 27 goals conceded from set-pieces during Jurgen Klopp's reign - the most racked up by any of the top-six during that period. I don't care what defenders they go and buy, how much they're going to cost, it won't make a difference.
But once again Carragher disagreed, he said: "If Van Dijk was playing instead of Lovren or Matip - he would have been in one of their positions".
In the Sky Sports studio, Carragher and Jamie Redknapp weren't impressed with Liverpool's defending.
But Carragher continued to argue that the Reds' system would still undermine their defensive personnel.
"Whether it's zonal marking, the players he puts in certain positions, the positions of the full-backs in general play are far too high and wide for me, which gets centre-backs exposed".
He said: 'There is a reason why they concede so many goals, because they are disorganised there and have no leaders at the back. Watford should've been one-nil up before the corner, nothing changes. If you want to win the Premier League, you've got to be conceding 30-35 goals.
"I think Lukaku will get goals for them, especially in the games where they dropped points, at home against weaker opposition".
'It's not rocket science how Liverpool concede goals, set-pieces and counter attacks.
But the former Reds centre-back is correct in suggesting that Klopp needs to address flaws in his setup, as they are only fated to remain regardless.
