Stan Collymore has argued that Liverpool are lacking the defence to make them title contenders this season, with Manchester United and City boasting players of a ‘different level’.

“Jamie Carragher is still one of the best defenders in the Premier League but you’re always looking to freshen things up,” he told Talksport.


“When you look at Vincent Kompany at Manchester City, [Rio] Ferdinand and people like Phil Jones who has come into Manchester United, I don’t think Dan Agger or Martin Skrtel compare. They are a level below.

“From a former Liverpool player’s perspective [they need] a top, top quality central defender in January, £20m worth, to be a leader from the back and eventually take over from and put competition on Jamie Carragher.”

Liverpool lost to Tottenham 4-0 yesterday, and had two men sent off during the match, including Skrtle and summer signing Charlie Adam.

Spurs exposed Liverpool in every area of the pitch, and Kenny Dalglish admitted that the north London side were just too good for the Reds on the day.
