Jamie Carragher predicts where Man United will finish this season

The former England defender questioned whether Klopp had worked on defensive issues that were apparent last season and claims Southampton star Virgil van Dijk, who is linked with a move to Anfield, would not fix the problem.

The Red Devils will be looking to make a significant improvement in their Premier League form this term after they stuttered to a disappointing sixth-placed finish last term.

“Since Arsenal changed to that back three, maybe on the back of Chelsea’s success, it completely changed the season really”.

It was a superb season opener at the Emirates Stadium live on Sky Sports Premier League, with Olivier Giroud heading home an 85th minute victor to seal the three points for the Gunners. One player’s not going to change that’.

‘It’s not rocket science how Liverpool concede goals, set-pieces and counter attacks.

“He’s done well pre-season”.

Although Carragher’s innocent mistake was laughed up by an bad lot of people on social media, it’s safe to say it is the first time that the adenoids, a body part with a similar function the the tonsils, have ever been mentioned after a football match.

“Did I think there was any hope of seeing Moreno in a Liverpool shirt again at the end of the season?” I see Virgil van Dijk making a difference to the back four because he is a leader’.

‘If you want to challenge for the Premier League then you need to concede 30 or 35 goals, so they need to take 15 goals away.

“You’ve got Firmino there”, Carragher countered.

“Talk about Van Dijk coming in, okay he’s a good player, but it’s from the side of the pitch, it’s the way Liverpool are set up”.

But Carragher continued to argue that the Reds’ system would still undermine their defensive personnel.

“If you’re a centre-back exposed there all the time…”

Twitter found the argument between the two former teammates very amusing…
