Jamie Carragher: This was one positive from Liverpool stalemate
The former Liverpool defender examines the one positive from Saturday's goalless draw at Southampton
Jamie Carragher has named the one positive from Liverpool’s goalless draw with Southampton at St Mary’s on Saturday afternoon.
The Reds were unable to record a third successive Premier League victory at St Mary’s after Liverpool failed to find the net despite registering 15 attempts on Fraser Forster’s goal.
Liverpool are still the Premier League’s leading goal-scorers after netting 30 times in 12 games in the 2016-17 season under the guidance of charismatic manager Jurgen Klopp.
Loris Karius managed to keep his second clean sheet since being introduced into Liverpool’s starting line-up at the expense of Belgium international Simon Mignolet.
And Carragher, who was part of Rafael Benitez’s Liverpool side that finished as runners-up in 2009, looked at one positive from the Merseyside club’s stalemate at St Mary’s.
“A positive side for Liverpool is they didn’t do anything stupid at the back, they haven’t kept many clean sheets this season and they will be pleased they managed to do that,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
Liverpool have already beaten title rivals Arsenal and Chelsea on the road in the Premier League this season, as well as defending champions Leicester City.
The 18-time English champions are unbeaten since a 2-0 loss at Burnley in August.
