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

Jurgen Klopp's side drew 3-3 at Watford in their opening Premier League game of the season, with poor marking leading to Stefano Okaka's first, an inability to track runners contributing to Abdoulaye Doucoure's second and shambolic defending at a corner causing Miguel Britos's late equaliser.

"The decision from the owners that they've stated is that he's going to stay". Everyone has got their own individual job. "They need a leader to head that ball clear". However, they had different solutions to the issue.

"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".

"Liverpool are a shambles, all over the place", Carragher said on Sky Sports after 45 minutes.

It's hard to argue with Carragher.

"If you're a centre-back exposed there all the time..." One player's not going to change that'.

"I don't care who is at centre-back, you can't do that much to stop those goals".

Calvo agrees, saying, "It's paradise". "With all the criticism that's going on over there, from a guy that's being targeted, we need a president like you".

"Nothing changes, what have they done pre-season?"

"Chelsea and Liverpool are in the hunt for him and while I think he'll choose Anfield, I can't wait to see where he goes".

"When that transfer request went in, I'm sure Jurgen Klopp turned around to and said to him "I know you want to go to Barcelona, you don't have to put it in writing, we know, it's obvious".

Carragher argued that it was something the team need to work on collectively, Redknapp reckoned that Virgil van Dijk would help shore up their leaky defence.

"It's the setup of the manager, he's been here now 18 months: set-pieces are the worst in the league, conceded the most goals of the top six, there's still no change".

"That's what happened with the first goal, the corner came from a counter attack, Watford should have been one up before the corner".

But the former Reds centre-back is correct in suggesting that Klopp needs to address flaws in his setup, as they are only fated to remain regardless.
