Jamie Carragher says Liverpool have to get their Premier League title challenge back on course against Bournemouth this weekend.
Following such a terrific start to the campaign, the club’s form has taken a dip of late, winning just two of their last five Premier League fixtures and exiting the FA Cup in between.
That has allowed Manchester City to close the gap on Klopp’s side and return to the summit on goal difference with an extra game played.
That has put the pressure firmly back on Liverpool in their quest for a first title in 29 years, and former defender Jamie Carragher says the club need to rectify their bad form against the Cherries on Saturday.
“We don’t know [if it’s a blip], we will have to see how long it continues,” Carragher told Sky Sports News.
“They have to put it right against Bournemouth.
“It doesn’t matter what anyone says really – whether it’s nerves, poor performance or whatever it may be.
“The only way they can stop that talk is by winning games.
“What they need to do is win the game against Bournemouth convincingly to put a bit of that talk to bed.
“There is no doubt, it has been an unbelievable season for Liverpool up until now and it is right that they haven’t had a bad spell in the season – we always say a team has that bit of a spell.”
