Former Liverpool defender talks about the crisis his loved club is in the middle of.

No one can deny that the champions of England are in a disastrous crisis. 5 home defeats in a row for Jurgen Klopp and it is their worst record since the first day this club was founded.

Jamie Carragher

says that


need to invest big money in the summer to regain their form.

"Goals, massively,"

Carragher told

Sky Sports


"They don't look like scoring. It's not just the games in which they haven't scored - you never even feel like the goals are coming. With 20 minutes to go, you don't really feel like Liverpool are going to score a goal.

"It felt like it needed to be a big Chelsea mistake to be a goal for Liverpool. I mentioned the RB Leipzig game beforehand as I felt Chelsea would play like Leipzig in that they played their own game and I was right - they pushed up high and played from the back.

"In some ways, that plays into Liverpool's hands, but they still couldn't exploit it. Against Leipzig, they did. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane got the goals but they were from big mistakes.

"At this moment when you're watching Liverpool, you're not quite sure where the goals are going to come from. I must say, I couldn't believe Salah came off.

"Liverpool were desperate for a goal so to take your top goalscorer off was a strange one."
