Carragher singles out five Liverpool players after 1-0 defeat to Burnley

Former Liverpool captain, Jamie Carragher, has expressed his concerns over five players in the current squad, following their 1-0 defeat to Burnley on Thursday night.


Carragher, speaking to Sky Sports, claimed Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are all “nowhere near their best”..



Ashley Barnes netted a late penalty after he was fouled by Alisson Becker, to end the Reds’ 68-match unbeaten home run.

Liverpool enjoyed most of the possession and created more chances, but were unable to break their resistance.

The result leaves Jurgen Klopp’s men six points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United, having failed to win 10 of their 19 matches this season.


“I can’t remember a time when this Liverpool team have been so out of form. The front three and the full-backs – all five of them – don’t feel anywhere near their best.

“It’s not just that they’re not scoring, it’s the general play as well. You saw with Salah, three or four times he just ran into defenders.

“Liverpool supporters will be massively frustrated. This team has brought the title back but the best Liverpool teams have brought that standard year in year out,” Carragher said.
