A single goal from Danny Ings decided the match in favour of the home side, but what was notable was the lack of reaction from Jurgen Klopp’s men.
They struggled to create a notable chance over the course of the match and finished having mustered just a single shot on target over the course of the game.
“But a big worry is where are the goals coming from and where is the creation coming from, because it looks non-existent at this point in time.
“They never looked like scoring. The Southampton keeper has just come into the starting XI. Did he make a good save? Did he make a big save? Did anyone miss a real chance? That’s a really big worry for Liverpool at this moment, in terms of what they’re creating away from home. It’s nowhere near enough.
“It’s almost like they’ve forgotten how to play the last seven or eight minutes when they need something. The way Liverpool played in the first 15 minutes of the second half was fantastic. They penned Southampton in. You’d expect that in the last seven or eight minutes.”
Carragher points to a corner that the Reds won after the displayed injury time had expired.
“What summed it up was Liverpool’s corner,” he said. “Injury time has gone, you have to put it into the box. You’ve basically got to score in about 10 seconds. They played it short. It’s unbelievable.”
