Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp get into argument over Virgil van Dijk

Jamie Carragher believes Romelu Lukaku will make Manchester United title contenders this season

Jurgen Klopp shouldn't have given Alberto Moreno another chance for Liverpool based on pre-season form – Carragher

You think, 'what are your weaknesses?' - set-pieces, getting done on the counter-attack.

The former England defender questioned whether Klopp had worked on defensive issues that were apparent last season and claims Southampton star Virgil van Dijk, who is linked with a move to Anfield, would not fix the problem.

"He will help, but on set-pieces it's not about the defence".

"The way Liverpool set up, set-piece-wise, they're always going to concede goals".

"He wouldn't be in Firmino's position [for the corner], he would have been in Lovren's or Matip's because they'd have been coming out of the team".

Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp engage in a heated debate about how to solve Liverpool's problems at defending set-pieces. But instead, his colleague reacted very badly, arguing that one player wouldn't be able to sort this mess out.

"They play so high and wide, if you're a centre-back you're exposed all the time, it's culture".

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal side knocked four past Leicester in a seven goal thriller last night, and Watford just scored in the 94th minute to earn a well deserved point against a disappointing Liverpool side who can't defend for toffee. Watford should've been one-nil up before the corner, nothing changes.

It takes their tally to 27 goals conceded from set-pieces during Jurgen Klopp's reign - the most racked up by any of the top-six during that period.

"So Liverpool have got to take 15 goals away that they concede year in, year out".

"If you want to challenge for the Premier League, or win the Premier League, you've got to be conceding less than a goal a game: 30, 35 goals".

"We're still seeing the same things year in, year out, and it went back to Brendan Rodgers as well".

Redknapp said: "I look at that Liverpool back four and there's a reason why they concede so many goals because they're disorganised and they have no leaders at the back".
