Reds legend calls for a creative midfielder


first_imgJamie Carragher and Graeme Souness believe Liverpool are missing a creative spark in the middle of the park ahead of the January transfer window.Liverpool drew blank with Manchester City on Sunday to continue their unbeaten start to the season in a game of few chances.The keenly-contested clash was largely played in midfield with the Reds only managing two shots on target at Anfield, which prompted the club legends to demand for a creative player if they are to compete for the title this season.“If Liverpool are in a really good position in January, I think they’ve got to be looking to address that [midfield area],” Carragher told Sky Sports post-match.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“It’s not even necessarily having someone who comes in and plays every single game. They just haven’t even got anyone like that in the squad. Adam Lallana is too injury prone.“Even if Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain comes back, [Naby] Keita goes in or Fabinho goes in they are all the same. Liverpool don’t play with a No 10, but there’s no David Silva or Bernardo Silva or a player like that in the squad.“I’m not talking about that player playing every week. It’s just the fact of having someone like that in the squad to turn to when you feel you need that player.”last_img
