“You cannot keep relying on the attackers to get a team out of trouble, and their goalkeeper issue needs to be resolved. David De Gea is still making too many mistakes.

Meanwhile, Carragher is insistent Liverpool must sign a central defender this month and says not doing so will only help their rivals’ title chances.
“The injury to Virgil Van Dijk alone will cost Liverpool between nine and 12 points over the course of this season,” Carragher added.
