Jamie Carragher: What frustrates me about Liverpool as a supporter
The Liverpool legend explains why he is frustrated with Jurgen Klopp's men this season
Jamie Carragher has admitted that he has found Liverpool’s inability to translate good performances into Premier League points frustrating after Sunday’s 2-2 draw with West Ham United.
The Merseyside outfit haven fallen further off the pace in the Premier League title race after Jurgen Klopp’s side failed to produce a winner in the second half at Anfield.
Liverpool appeared to be coasting towards three points in the Premier League after Adam Lallana’s classy finish to break the deadlock in the fifth minute at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
However, Dimitri Payet and Michail Antonio silenced the home supporters with goals before half-time to leave the Merseyside outfit facing back-to-back Premier League defeats.
Belgium striker Divock Origi levelled within four second-half minutes but the 18-time English champions were unable to beat Darren Randolph despite Jordan Henderson’s superb attempt.
Liverpool are six points behind current leaders Chelsea after the Reds drew with Southampton and West Ham in their last four games as well as a 4-3 defeat by Bournemouth.
Speaking to Sky Sports after Sunday’s 2-2 draw with the Hammers, Carragher said:
“They’re in a sticky spell the last four Premier League games. They’ve only won one of their last four games but they’ve played well. You’ll have a spell over the season where you don’t play well and drop points. It happens.
“Over this four-game spell, Liverpool were top of the league at the start but they’re not six points behind Chelsea. They’re playing well – that’s the frustration for me and the manager.”
Carragher added: “The small details are costing them. The biggest frustration for me as a Liverpool supporter is that they aren’t playing poorly. As Jurgen Klopp said, they played well again today.”
