Jamie Carragher says he is “sick” of Liverpool’s excuses after their 2-0 defeat to Everton on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side lost their fourth Premier League game in a row; their first Merseyside derby defeat in ten years.
Richarlison got Everton off to a great start as he opened the scoring after just three minutes, before Gylfi Sigurdsson’s penalty wrapped up all three points for Everton after Dominic Calvert-Lewin was brought down in the box by Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Liverpool’s performance was way off the levels they have reached over the last two years and Carragher insists they got what they deserved.
“Liverpool have been so poor, they have got everything deserved,” Carragher said on commentary.
“They can’t keep saying ‘Virgil van Dijk is out’. I’m sick of saying it myself.
“Going forward is as big a problem as what we’re seeing defensively from Liverpool now,” he also said on air.
“I know Liverpool have dominated possession but it doesn’t mean anything if you don’t create. And that is a big problem for this Liverpool team.
“Very rarely do you see Liverpool play now when you expect them to score.”
Graeme Souness added: “They’re a shadow of their former selves” said Graeme Souness post-game. “They’re an easy touch.”
“2-0 doesn’t flatter Everton. They deserved to win it. In all the areas that really matter, they were better than Liverpool.”
