Liverpool extended their winning streak for the first time since December as the Reds beat Newcastle 2-0 at St James’ Park on Saturday night, but Jamie Carragher wasn’t happy with everything he saw at his former club. .
Goals from Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo secured all three goals for Jürgen Klopp’s side, but the performance was not spectacular and without Alisson Newcastle would certainly have been on the scoresheet. .
One thing Jamie Carragher noticed while commenting on the Sky Sports clash was how Liverpool defended a set-piece and weren’t happy with what he was seeing.
“Liverpool’s defense in today’s set-piece was really shocking. Really bad,” said a pundit during the match.
He also criticized his former team’s defense: “It’s too easy to get Liverpool.”
A weakness in Liverpool’s defense is something Real Madrid will try to exploit in the Champions League on Tuesday night, as Klopp is unlikely to be able to fix it all season.
