Jamie Carragher has urged Jurgen Klopp to sign a new goalkeeper following Simon Mignolet’s latest howler in the 2-0 defeat against Hull City.

The Reds slumped to a disappointing reversal in Humberside thanks, in part, to the Belgian stopper’s error for Alfred N’Diaye’s opener.

It was the second time in less than a week that the former Sunderland goalkeeper had come in for criticism for his form, as he was also deemed to be at fault for David Luiz’s free-kick in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Tuesday.

And after the match at the KCOM Stadium, Anfield legend Carragher slammed the Belgian for his performance, saying that Klopp should replace him with a top-class alternative at the end of the season.

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.”


The defeat leaves the Merseysiders without a win in the Premier League in 2017- and Carragher also took a swipe at the side’s soft centre as well as its lack of depth.

“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.”

Next up for Liverpool is a home game against in-form Tottenham on Saturday.
