Liverpool has now conceded 14 goals in nine games in all competitions and kept only two clean sheets.
Jamie Carragher has explained what the “big problem” for Jurgen Klopp is at Liverpool. He has singled out a key culprit who is ”miles off the pace”.
The Reds failed to win for the fifth time in the Premier League this season. They were two goals down at one stage and then, scripted a comeback to go ahead with 3-2. But, Trossward’s hattrick assured Brighton one point at Anfield.
Klopp’s side has now conceded 14 goals in nine games in all competitions this season and kept only two clean sheets.
“It’s a huge concern,” Carragher said on Sky Sports Monday Night Football. “They are always giving themselves so much to do. They have not lost too many of those games, so it’s not an attitude problem.
“They’ve managed to get back into games. In the past we have spoken about Liverpool conceding goals because of a high line but for me a big problem right now is the midfield.
“Teams are coming through and getting at that back four far too easily – and also early in games, hence the poor starts. Brighton were 2-0 up but I think it’s fair to say it should’ve been 4-0 after 20 minutes because Liverpool are not organised and not difficult to beat as they always were.
“Klopp’s thing was always to make Liverpool the hardest to play against – right now, they look the easiest team to play against. Some of what we saw in the first half against Brighton you would have expected later in games if Liverpool were chasing them.
“Every supporter in the summer would tell you they felt midfield would be a problem this season. Fabinho has been miles off the pace from what he’s been this season. There have been times where they have been lucky in situations.”
