Jamie Carragher sends message to Gary Neville after Liverpool draw at Watford

Juventus have tabled a bid of £23m for Emre Can

Carragher argued that it was something the team need to work on collectively, Redknapp reckoned that Virgil van Dijk would help shore up their leaky defence.

Van Dijk, reportedly valued at around £60million by Southampton, handed in a transfer request last week in a move to hopefully force a move away.

Jurgen Klopp's side went into half-time trailing 2-1 at Vicarage Road, after conceding two sloppy goals. The way Liverpool are set up - set piece wise - they will always concede goals.

But once again Carragher disagreed, he said: "If Van Dijk was playing instead of Lovren or Matip - he would have been in one of their positions".

Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp engage in a heated debate about how to solve Liverpool's problems at defending set-pieces.

Carragher was adamant - extremely adamant - that one player, regardless of how good they are, can not solve Liverpool's shaky defence.

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal side knocked four past Leicester in a seven goal thriller last night, and Watford just scored in the 94th minute to earn a well deserved point against a disappointing Liverpool side who can't defend for toffee.

"It's the setup of the manager, he's been here now 18 months: set-pieces are the worst in the league, conceded the most goals of the top six, there's still no change".

"On average Liverpool conceded around 50 goals a season".

"You've got Firmino there", Carragher countered.

"We're still seeing the same things year in, year out, and it went back to Brendan Rodgers as well".

"It starts with Emre Can trying to be smart with a back heel before the throw in comes, that's where it comes from, they're not going with runners".

"It's not rocket science how Liverpool concede goals: set-pieces and counter-attacks".

But the former Reds centre-back is correct in suggesting that Klopp needs to address flaws in his setup, as they are only fated to remain regardless.
