Jamie Carragher predicts where Liverpool will finish this term

Their side were trailing 2-1 at the break after Watford twice took the lead through Stefano Okaka and then Abdoulaye Doucoure.

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.

One Arsenal fan managed to hit back at the former Liverpool player with a response that contained more medical terminology that we're used to seeing in the world of football Twitter.

The Reds' defending for both goals left a lot to be desired and even sparked an argument between former Liverpool players Jamie Redknapp and Jamie Carragher in the Sky Sports studio.

'Nothing changes, again. That first half was like Liverpool at their worst last season so then you've had a pre-season and nothing's changing. What have they worked on?

"You think where they were weak last season: set pieces, getting done on the counter-attack, that's what happened with the first goal - for the corner - it comes from a counter attack".

'It's nearly impossible. What defenders can do that?' Van Dijk will improve it, yeah, but one man can't change it all'.

Significant strength was also visible among software stocks, as reflected by the 1.2% gain posted by the Dow Jones Software Index. Avis Budget Group slumped 9.9 percent after the auto rental company cut its guidance following a weak second quarter.

"If you're Van Dijk's agent you've got another 20 grand a week on his contract after watching that".

I think everybody's missed this mischievous "friendship".

Although Carragher's innocent mistake was laughed up by an terrible lot of people on social media, it's safe to say it is the first time that the adenoids, a body part with a similar function the the tonsils, have ever been mentioned after a football match.

"I mean he's been questioned about scoring in the big games, but that was a big problem for United a year ago, beating teams at home, teams they should beat, so I think he'll help with that".

'If you want to challenge for the Premier League then you need to concede 30 or 35 goals, so they need to take 15 goals away. "Firmino can attack the ball!" But Redknapp said a defender of Van Dijk's calibre, would instantly improve the team's performance at set-pieces, as he is a "leader".

"They play so high and wide, if you're a centre-back you're exposed all the time, it's culture".

It's hard to argue with Carragher.
