Liverpool’s defence was “gripped with fear” during Saturday’s 3-1 defeat by West Ham, according to Jamie Redknapp.

Brendan Rodgers’ men slumped to their third Premier League loss of the season at Upton Park, with the Reds now having conceded eight goals in the top flight.

And former Liverpool midfielder Redkanpp is concerned by the rate at which the Merseyside club have been shipping goals.

“Without Luis Suarez, Liverpool were never going to score as many goals,” Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail. “The worrying thing for Brendan Rodgers is his side are still letting them in at an alarming rate.

“They’ve let in 35 league goals and kept six clean sheets in 2014. That’s not good enough. Opposition teams are sensing the fear and set-pieces in particular are now a phobia for Rodgers’s men.

“The Liverpool defence look gripped by fear at every corner and free-kick. Since the start of last season they have let in more goals from set-pieces than City or Chelsea. They must improve.”
