Liverpool have warned by Jamie Carragher to not play the offside trap against Arsenal this weekend.
Carragher said on Monday Night Football: “With the quality Arsenal have, if Liverpool get themselves in those positions and don’t run back, they’re going to have major problems within that game.
“On the counter-attack as well, with Liverpool higher up the pitch, Arsenal could cause big problems, I have no doubt about that.
“The chances and the shots on goal that they are allowing at the moment, better quality teams and strikers will make Liverpool pay.”
He added: “But now Liverpool are playing offside and I don’t like it.
“I think they’ve been lucky and fortunate at a number of different times this season to get away with it.”
The Sky Sports pundit said: “When I was a kid coming through, there was something said to us as young players at Liverpool which was ‘we don’t play offside, they run offside’.
“The point Ronnie Moran [former Liverpool captain and coach] was making was that if someone makes a stupid early run, we stay where we are, we’re confident enough. If someone makes a good run and it’s tight, you go with them.
“We didn’t stand still, play offside and not move.”
