Liverpool have been staggeringly consistent in the past few seasons. This consistency owes a lot to consistency in team selection. The same XI plays near enough every week, barring injuries. However, injuries can cause a massive disruption – we saw as much this weekend. Jamie Carragher has hinted that Liverpool could move for a goalkeeper on deadline day in reaction to Adrian’s error.
Kopites were left stunned this weekend when the Reds fell to a chastening defeat at Aston Villa.
The Reds were absolutely hammered, although the hosts did score a hat-trick of heavily and luckily deflected goals.
Adrian set the tone for the evening with a sloppy error early on which gifted the hosts the lead.
Then things went from bad to worse, the defence were clearly rocked by the calamitous error and they continued to leak goals.
Carragher on Liverpool goalkeeper
Jamie Carragher hinted on Sky Sports on Sunday night that Liverpool could move for a goalkeeper before the window closes.
The Reds icon was baffled by the Spaniard’s display in goal, bursting into laughter at times. Speaking during the broadcast the Scouser said:
“It wouldn’t shock me if Liverpool didn’t try to do something on Monday. A new keeper might not have been in their thinking [before Sunday]. It could be now….”
What RTK has to say
We simply cannot keep losing big games because of Adrian errors.
What is the point in splashing out on a world class keeper if whenever he gets injured we just capitulate?
Sure, the Spaniard had a strong record for the Reds in the league prior to last night, however, he had put in shockers against Chelsea and Atletico Madrid which saw us crash out of two cups.
It would be unlike Liverpool to be so reactionary in the transfer market but something does have to change.
