Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has admitted that he is concerned with the high defensive line from the Reds as they prepare to host Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.
Jurgen Klopp‘s side are currently top of the table with the perfect tally of six points after the opening two games and this has only been replicated by the Gunners, who are just behind them on goal difference.
The Reds have had the better of the Gunners in the last three meetings at Anfield where they have beaten them 3-1, 4-0 and 5-1 respectively but Carragher anticipates a much challenging contest this time around.
While Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are bound to test the Gunners’ defensive resolve, Carragher is also concerned with the Reds’ high line against the pace and clinicalness of the Gunners’ attack.
Speaking on the Reds’ defensive shape, he told Sky Sports: “I don’t like it and I think they’ve been lucky and fortunate at different times this season to get away with it.”
The former England international added that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe will offer a different challenge to the Reds backline, which has regularly sought to play the offside trap this term.
