Liverpool faced off with Leeds in Saturday’s late Premier League kick-off.
The Reds headed into the game in poor form, previously losing to Nottingham Forest the weekend prior.
However, Leeds had lost four on the bounce heading into Saturday, so a Liverpool win seemed likely.
But when all was said and done, Leeds came away with a 2-1 win.
The defeat against Leeds was Liverpool’s first home defeat in 29 Premier League games and 19 months. This was also the first time that Virgil van Dijk lost a game at Anfield bringing an end to his 70-game streak.
Liverpool are now 9th in the Premier League and eight points off the top-four.
Now, after the game, Jamie Carragher has stated Liverpool have a serious problem and he is unsure what else Jurgen Klopp can do:
“It’s a huge result for Leeds but Liverpool have got massive problems. Leeds’ fans know how big a result this is,” he said.
“It’s so long since anyone’s won at Anfield. They’re going to milk it and rightly so. It will do wonders for them, in terms of the league table.
“This isn’t a blip for Liverpool, this is a serious problem. There’s no doubt that the goalkeeper in the last 10-15 minutes has kept Leeds in it but if you look at the whole game you can’t say Leeds haven’t deserved to get something from it. They’ve been fantastic. Klopp must be thinking, what else can I try now, different permutations, formations, personnel.”
