Liverpool summer signing Keita and Adam Lallana made Jurgen Klopp's starting XI that drew with West Ham United in the Premier League on Monday night.

The Reds failed to take all three points against the Hammers at the London Stadium and former Liverpool forward Aldridge criticised the duo performance after the setback, admitting they are not up to the task for a title winning team.

Aldridge told Independent.ie: "Klopp's side dropped more points at West Ham, but a bigger issue for me in both games has been the performance or lack of it from Liverpool's midfielders.

"Salah, Mane and Firmino will give you a cutting edge if the balance of the team is right, but the players sitting behind them at West Ham failed to produce the goods and it cost Liverpool.

"I know Klopp was forced into changes due to injuries, but Adam Lallana and Naby Keita cannot play together in midfield again, as they are just not up to the job for a title-winning team.

"My first impressions of Lallana when he came to Liverpool were not positive and while he proved me wrong to an extent with some good performances before his recent injury problems, it looks like he is struggling to get back to those levels once again after so long in the treatment room.

"As for Keita, he has not settled at Liverpool and has failed to deliver the performances we were expecting from him, with Klopp and his coaching staff fighting to get him up to speed and still waiting to see if he will be good enough to play in this team."
