Carragher slams players and reveals major Klopp mistake after West Ham draw

Jamie Carragher criticised Liverpool’s performance against West Ham on Monday as Jurgen Klopp’s side dropped points yet again.

And the Liverpool legend said Klopp’s decision to send Nathaniel Clyne out on loan was coming back to hurt him, with James Milner struggling to play at right back.

Liverpool, who drew to Leicester City last Tuesday, took the lead through a Sadio Mane goal that shouldn’t have been allowed for offside.

West Ham produced a free-kick just six minutes later, however, which resulted in Michail Antonio firing past Alisson.

Carragher was critical of a number of Liverpool players and said the club’s lack of squad depth was visible.

He told Sky Sports: ‘It was a really poor performance. So many players performed so poorly. The manager is clearly frustrated.

‘What’s hurting Liverpool is the squad. Look at the right back situation. Klopp has made a big mistake letting Clyne go. You don’t need to let him go, keep him there.

‘Milner playing at right back, he looks completely out of position. Keita doesn’t look quite right. Mane is not his normal self. We didn’t see Salah tonight.

‘Liverpool are not a solid team right now. It doesn’t feel right.’

Speaking after the 1-1 draw, Virgil van Dijk said: ‘It was a tough match. West Ham played well and defended well.

‘It could have been a lot better [the performance]. It is what it is. We are still top of the league – today is a bit disappointing but we move on.’

Hammers captain Mark Noble, said: ‘We defended fantastically well and probably deserved to win tonight. You can’t play man to man against Liverpool and out-pass them.

‘You have to keep your shape and stop them. We scared them. You have to do that against the top teams. I’m just gutted we didn’t come away with the three points.

‘We’re gutted in there because the goal was clearly offside. We scored a fantastic set-play and didn’t manage to get a second goal.’
