Jamie Carragher has called on Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to strengthen their attacking options in the upcoming transfer window following a blunt performance against Everton.
The Reds marked their return to the Premier League with a scoreless draw with rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby.
Winger Mohamed Salah was missing from the starting line-up through a minor injury and Klopp named Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Takumi Minamino in their front three.

Mohamed Salah was benched against Everton so Liverpool didn’t have usual front three
Minamino struggled to impress at Goodison Park and the former Liverpool defender explained that there is a ‘massive drop off’ when one of their star-studded front three doesn’t feature.
‘The front three are as good as anyone in Europe but when just one of them isn’t playing there is a massive drop off,’ Carragher explained on Sky Sports after Liverpool’s 0-0 draw with Everton.
‘Go back to the Manchester United game earlier in the season without Salah. I feel that’s why Liverpool still need to strengthen their front three.
‘(Divock) Origi is a legend at the club for the goals he scored but they still need more. (Takumi) Minamino is not for me.

‘If they lost one of the wide players for a while through injury, they would be in trouble.’
Liverpool missed out on the chance to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, who has since agreed to joined Premier League rivals Chelsea when his contract with the Bundesliga club comes to an end later this month.
They have also taken a blow on their pursuit of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, after their valuation came £32million under the £90m asking price for the Senegalese international.
