Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool “still need a left-back” after Alberto Moreno’s performance against Sevilla.
Moreno has been much-improved this season, but was at fault for two of Sevilla’s three goals in their comeback draw against Liverpool on Tuesday.
Carragher blasted the entire team for their childlike defending, but singled out Moreno for particular criticism.
“He’s had a lot of credit this season because he’s performed a lot better than he has done,” he told Viasport.
“But he’s been at the club now for three or four years, and I don’t think a run of seven, eight games should cloud people’s judgement of what you think of him as a player.
“I still think Liverpool need a left-back. He has done a lot better this season but he still has those moments where he makes rash decisions and rash tackles.
“And I don’t think that will ever go out of his game.
“It was actually a very good decision by Klopp to bring James Milner on, because at that stage I thought Liverpool were going to lose the game, never mind draw.
“To be fair he has done well, we haven’t seen that a lot this season, but again it goes back to the Moreno we’ve seen for the last three or four years.”
