Anfield brings close After Leeds United’s shocking victory against Liverpool, Sky Sports Pundit Jamie Carragher termed this win as a huge result for the Whites.

“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,” told Carragher in the Sunday night football.

The Sky Sports Pundit then pointed out the Leeds goalkeeper’s massive performance against his former team. But Jamie Carragher also admitted that Leeds deserved points from this game.

Throughout the season, Liverpool have been hot and cold. they have defeated teams like Manchester City and then suffered losses against Nottingham Forest. Klopp has tried many formations but nothing has given him success for a continuous period. The German will be once again back to the drawing board, thinking about what changes he will have to do.

Speaking about the same, Carragher said, “Klopp must be thinking, what else can I try now? Different permutations, formations, personnel”

The biggest issue for Liverpool this season has been multiple injuries to their key players. This forced Klopp to do many changes to his lineup. As a result, Klopp has struggled to have a set eleven.

After this loss, Liverpool will stay in ninth place. The Reds now have only sixteen points from twelve matches and the top four is looking like a distant dream for them.

The Reds will now face Napoli in their next match.
