Luis Diaz scored a late goal for Liverpool in their game against Luton, getting a 1-1 draw. Jamie Carragher, a former Liverpool player, thinks the team still needs two more players to become strong challengers for the Premier League title this season.
The Missing Pieces
Carragher believes Liverpool needs a top defender and a holding midfielder to compete with teams like Manchester City for the title. He says that although Liverpool’s midfield is better this season, they are missing a strong player who can stop the opponents from attacking.
What’s Lacking in Defense and Midfield
Liverpool struggles to prevent other teams from making quick attacks. Carragher says they need a solid defender who can play in different positions in the backline. He also feels that the team lacks a top-notch holding midfielder.
Team’s Readiness and Upcoming Challenges
Liverpool is not quite ready to win the league, according to Carragher. He thinks the team wants to get back into the top four first. The team is three points behind Manchester City in the league table.
Diaz’s Goal Keeps Hope Alive
Diaz’s goal helped Liverpool secure a draw in the game, preventing their only loss of the season, which happened against Tottenham in a controversial match where Liverpool had two players sent off.
Carragher’s insights suggest that while Liverpool is doing well, they still need a bit more to aim for the title.
