Thiago Alcantara struggling to find his natural role since his return from injury.
The 29-year old midfielder had exhibited his exquisite range of passing in a Reds shirt but he is struggling to find key passes into the final third.
Liverpool have won only two of their last eight Premier League games and the Merseyside are finding it hard to defend their title.
Former Reds player Jamie Redknapp believes Thiago is not be blamed for Liverpool’s struggles.
“It’s a load of rubbish to try and blame Thiago for Liverpool’s problems over the last few weeks,” said Redknapp at a Sky Sports event.
“We are talking about one of the great technicians in the game here. I could watch him play football all day and the idea that people are saying he is Liverpool’s problem is laughable in my eyes.
“This guy played in the Champions League final last year, he is a class act. He is one of the best midfield players in the world and that has not changed in the last few weeks.
“He is a technician who can do special passes and special things and it’s not his fault to say Liverpool are conceding goals or blame him for some of their performances. It’s not fair.”
“He is a slightly different player. Maybe there will be games when you need [Jordan] Henderson, [Gini] Wijnaldum and Fabinho in that midfield like Liverpool had last year. But I find it quite disrespectful to talk about Thiago like this.”
