Carragher makes a good point here about Van Disney. While he has been a fair way off his best, Liverpools ageing and injury prone midfield gives their defence no protection.
Our defence under Klopp has always been predicated on a well coordinated press starting in the front third. Everyone drilled to know the triggers to press within an inch of their lives. All explosive, hard working athletes. When that press isn't functioning properly it cascades all the way to the back 4.
- Henderson, ageing
- Thiago, ageing and can't get on the park, even when fit not renowned for his defensive capability
- Keita and Ox, can't get on the park
- Elliott and Carvalho, talented but tactically naive
- Diaz and Jota, injured
- Nunez, in addition to not finishing his chances he's also nowhere near Mane/Firmino defensively.
