Jamie Carragher Believes It’s Time To Break Up Liverpool’s Front Three

Roberto Firmino may lose his place in Liverpool's attacking trio with Jürgen Klopp's side struggling for goals in recent weeks, former defender Jamie Carragher said.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Firmino scored a combined 183 Premier League goals over the last four campaigns and helped the Merseyside club to their first title in 30 years last season. But their form has dropped off recently and they have gone three league games without a goal, including Sunday's 0-0 draw with leaders Manchester United at Anfield.

Are Liverpool's Recent Struggles Just A Poor Run Of Form Or A Sign Of Deeper Problems?

It's not very often that a team can have a disappointing campaign but still find themselves at the top of the table. With the competitiveness of the Premier League, a struggling season means at best mid-table misery, at worst, relegation. 

Liverpool is currently even with Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table, but given the exceptional performances of last season, the club's form this year is below Jurgen Klopp's lofty standards.

Danny Ings Lobs Southampton To 1-0 Win Over Listless Liverpool

A superb second-minute lob by Danny Ings gave Southampton a surprise 1-0 home win over Premier League leaders Liverpool, with the Reds' attack looking rudderless as they were held scoreless for the second game in a row.
