Jamie Carragher disagrees with Jordan Henderson post-match comments


Liverpool failed to win for a third time in a row on Monday evening when they lost to Southampton

After draws with West Brom and Newcastle United, the Reds slipped off again, falling to a 1-0 defeat at Southampton.

Jurgen Klopp's men couldn't bounce back from a superb finish by former Anfield man Danny Ings that came 2 minutes into the first half.

The Reds despite dominating possession couldn't hit more than a short on target across a well organised Southampton defence.

Following the defeat, Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson bemoaned his team’s slow start, and believed they gave enough to get a result after the break.

An assessment that didn't go down well with Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher's perception.

Henderson told Sky Sports: "Start didn't help. When we're starting slow in games it's not us. We're probably seeing it a bit too many times at the minute. It doesn't help

"Second half performance was very good, but we don’t score again, last two games we’ve had some good chances but haven’t put the ball in the back...that is another issue.

"We just had to keep pushing, try to find that equaliser, but unfortunately we couldn’t do it. I thought we created some good chances still and maybe should have scored to get the equaliser – probably deserved it second half."

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher disputed Henderson’s assessment, claiming his old side didn’t do enough to force the issue against a well organised Southampton team.

He said: "Jordan Henderson then just mentioned that he felt Liverpool should have got something out of the game, they played well in second half. I don't agree with that.

"When you actually look at the stats there you say 'Liverpool are much better than Southampton' but we had this argument a few weeks ago when we were talking about Arsenal vs Spurs. The stats for Arsenal compared to Spurs.

"It's up to Liverpool to get on the ball. But the biggest thing when you're in that situation is not having more possession, you're always going to have more possession when you're losing. It always happens. It's what you do with the possession.

"You said one shot on target. I can't think of chance where I thought 'how's he missed that?' for a Liverpool player. Or the keeper's made a great save."
