Carragher discusses Liverpool lack of creativity in midfield

Jamie Carragher has discussed Liverpool’s lack of midfield creativity following Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Everton in the Merseyside Derby.

The result was Liverpool’s fourth draw in their past six fixtures and saw Manchester City replace Jurgen Klopp’s side at the top of the division for the first time since December.

Liverpool began the game with a midfield three of Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho, whilst James Milner and Adam Lallana were introduced from the bench.

Xherdan Shaqiri remained an unused substitute, and Carragher discussed whether Liverpool’s midfield lacks creativity in breaking down stubborn opponents.

“Yes, in terms of the make-up of the midfield,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“But it’s not just a problem now, I think that was even a problem if you go back to the end of last season.

“They lost Coutinho last January and they never replaced him. They tried to replace him with someone from Lyon (Nabil Fekir) in the summer but they couldn’t get him, there wasn’t three or four different options.

“So it’s not just a case of right now, in the summer, even if Liverpool win the league, it is still a position I think they will try and fill because it’s not just a case of one player going in there and being the best player. They don’t even really have that type of player off the bench.
