After a disappointing campaign last season, the Merseyside club opted to revamp their engine room by signing four new midfielders last summer. After a fairly successful transfer window, Jurgen Klopp’s side have been in fine form so far this season, amassing 37 points from 16 league games. They currently top the table, one point ahead of Arsenal.

However, Carragher has not been impressed with his old club’s performances this season, despite Liverpool being top of the league.

Therefore, the former defender writes in The Telegraph that he is surprised to see Liverpool currently leading the league. The expert further pointed out that the Merseyside club’s squad lacks balance and they need to sign a top defensive midfielder to solve this problem.

Carragher also said that Liverpool has not yet performed at its best this season and they need to improve their away form as soon as possible.

“Liverpool are top of the league but I’m not quite sure how to do it. The table says one thing but my eyes tell me another. The balance of the team is still not quite right and it’s hard to imagine not having it Ready-made defensive midfielder.

“Liverpool haven’t had those wow moments yet. Many Liverpool fans will tell you they’re not sure how good the current team is and it’s too early to compare it to Klopp’s previous championship teams. morning.

“The form away from home has been inconsistent, with a couple of bad wins and draws, and while there’s been a lot of talk about Liverpool 2.0, in reality, they’re winning games because Klopp’s first great Anfield team laid the groundwork Base.”

Liverpool reportedly wanted to sign Romeo Lavia and Moises Caicedo last summer to bolster their defensive midfield. However, they were unable to purchase either of them, so Jurgen Klopp’s side ultimately opted to purchase the services of Wataru Endo from Stuttgart.

After joining the Red Army, the Japanese has struggled to show his best form. As a result, it has been suggested that the Anfield club may sign a new holding midfielder in January to help Klopp continue his title challenge.

It will therefore be interesting to see whether Liverpool ultimately decide to sign a new midfielder in the winter window.
