Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has suggested that Jurgen Klopp could benefit from changing his system due to the current injury problems.
Liverpool have a number of first-team players missing through injury and have lost six of their last nine games in all competitions, sending them out of the FA Cup and outside of the top four in the Premier League.
However, Carragher says that injuries are not an excuse to lose each game and points out that Liverpool still had 10 Champions League winners in the starting XI against Everton. He adds that his Liverpool side, that was not as good as the current one, managed to beat Everton twice whilst down to 10 men at 0-0.
Carragher thinks Klopp could improve Liverpool’s chances of winning matches by altering his formation to a 4-2-3-1, adding an attacking midfielder alongside the front three. Along with that, he suggests dropping the defensive line further back to stop players like Ozan Kabak from being exposed in-behind.
🗣 "I played in teams not as good as this one, you find a way to win. Liverpool started the game against Everton with 10 Champions League winners. That's why I'm saying it's not an excuse in individual games."@Carra23 on how Liverpool can win games with their injury problems pic.twitter.com/ktzcqtAZ8j
