Jamie Carragher suggested that Liverpool are “mentality midgets” after they suffered their sixth straight defeat at Anfield on Sunday against Fulham.
Mario Lemina picked Mohamed Salah’s pocket before firing home as relegation battlers Fulham sunk defending league champions Liverpool 1-0 on their home turf.
As Klopp’s side suffered yet another worrying home league loss, the pundits lined up a volley of brickbats at the Reds – with ex-Liverpool defender Carragher leading the cohort.
Klopp’s tag of “mentality monsters” to describe last term’s champions came back to haunt the German, as the Reds slipped to seventh in the table.
“Jurgen Klopp previously called this team mentality monsters and that was absolutely right at the time,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“But right now they are like mentality midgets.
“This team is just not dealing well with adversity at any point in the last four months. And that’s just not acceptable at Liverpool.”
