Jamie Carragher has claimed that Liverpool need “something new” in the Final third to attain another success.
The Liverpool legend thinks it’s time for the trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino that gave Liverpool a memorable era of success to be brought to an end.
“People have talked about the forward line being out of form, but it’s been too long now for that [to be used as an argument] , the Former Liverpool defender Carragher told Sky Sports .
“People keep talking about Liverpool’s problems at centre-back, but their biggest problem is at the other end of the pitch.
“We know that both Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez will be back next season. Liverpool’s famous front three, and rightly so, are still there.
“They’ve had the added bonus of Diogo Jota, who’s chipped in with a few goals, but I said this six months ago on Monday Night Football – the front three needed breaking up because no front three is ever together for this long.
“When you look at other great attacking partnerships and front threes from the past, they last probably three years and then you move on. Liverpool’s have been together for probably four or five years so it does need breaking up in the summer.
“That’s where Liverpool need to invest, as they do at centre-back of course. It’s actually quite similar to Manchester United, but that’s where Liverpool need to spend the money.
“The front three have been amazing but it’s just at that stage now where it needs something else and it must be rectified in the summer when you think of the chances that have been missed this season.
“You have to move with the times, and an extra bit of competition up front wouldn’t go amiss.”
Liverpool have struggled for consistency all through the season ,a lot of injuries to their key players has been used as an excuse for their inconsistency .
Their highest goal scorer Salah has continued to shine, he has scored 29 goals across all competitions and he is in contention for a third Golden Boot.
Mane has failed to live up to expectations , with the Senegalese forward scoring just 13 goals this season with only eight of those coming in the English premier league.
Firmino has fared even worse, with the hard-working Brazilian finding the target just six times in total
