Carragher Expresses Concerns Over Liverpool's Defensive Struggles Following Chelsea Draw

Liverpool's defensive performance is raising concerns after the team's hard-fought 1-1 draw against Chelsea, according to football pundit Jamie Carragher.

In the thrilling match, Luis Diaz netted a goal for the visiting Liverpool, taking the lead at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

However, Chelsea's newcomer Axel Disasi made a memorable debut by scoring the equaliser for Mauricio Pochettino’s Blues, ultimately concluding the match with a 1-1 result.

Sharing his insights on the game, Carragher conveyed his thoughts to Sky Sports, saying: "Chelsea are a work in progress. New manager, new players. I think they've been the better team today, there's no doubt about that."

Carragher further emphasised, "The big worry for me with Liverpool is defensively. The last action sums it up as they had a corner and they nearly conceded a goal at the other end. Liverpool need a holding midfielder. They need a real defender, an out-and-out defender who can play right across that back four."

The concerns surrounding Liverpool's defensive vulnerabilities have raised eyebrows among fans and experts alike. As Liverpool FC navigates the challenges of the 2023-24 Premier League season, addressing these defensive issues could be a key factor in maintaining their competitive edge.
