Jamie Carragher has blasted Simon Mignolet and urged manager Jurgen Klopp to sign a new goalkeeper this summer.
The Liverpool keeper was at fault for David Luiz’s free kick in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea as he was caught napping with a quick free kick from the Brazilian.
And the Belgium shot-stopper was once again culpable as he dropped the ball for Alfred N’Diaye’s opener in the Reds’ hugely damaging 2-0 defeat to Hull on Saturday.
After the game Carragher claimed that Klopp’s Reds would never be successful if they persisted with the former Sunderland keeper.
He said: “Simon Mignolet showed again today why Liverpool need to sign a goalkeeper.
“He is not decisive enough.
“Liverpool will do nothing, try to win trophies and get Champions League places in the coming years with the goalkeepers they have.”
Carragher was also furious with the manner of the defeat in Humberside, and believes that the Reds are now too easy to play against having seen them win just one of their 10 games this calendar year.
“It’s not rocket science now how you beat Liverpool,” he added. “I think every manager in the league except the top five will employ Hull’s tactics against Liverpool.
“They are too easy to beat.
“There’s things in this Liverpool team that at times you kid yourself that it’s ok. Lucas at centre back and Milner left-back.
“If the form Liverpool are in continues in the next few weeks the chances of top four will be gone very quickly.
“If you look at the bench it looks stronger than the last few weeks but the manager’s waited too long to make a change recently.”
After beginning 2017 with pretensions of fighting for the title, the Reds now sit in the top four on goal difference only, and trail Premier League leaders Chelsea by 13 points.
A result for Manchester City on Sunday at home to Swansea will see Klopp’s side drop out of the top four.
