Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could be wise to listen to the transfer advice of Reds legend Jamie Carragher.

The German missed a huge opportunity to put distance between his side and Arsenal in Thursday's Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg tie, although the 10-man Gunners held on for an impressive 0-0 draw.

Klopp can hardly be blamed for taking a cautious approach to his team selection, with Jordan Henderson and James Milner starting either side of Fabinho in midfield.

While that gave them the luxury of extra solidity against a confident side, it undoubtedly took away from the attacking threat which Liverpool have become known for under Klopp.

Creative sparks such as Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain began on the bench, and although both appeared in the second half, the performance highlighted a deficiency in Klopp's squad. Indeed, the Reds have been linked with a star who could give them plenty of solidity when on the back-foot, and plenty of threat going the other way.

Ultimately, that could give Klopp a missing ingredient - a player who can grab the game by the scruff of the neck without leaving the rest of his team-mates defensively vulnerable.

Nowhere more so could that have been more important than in Thursday's clash with Arsenal, where a lack of well-rounded options led to a missed opportunity for Klopp and his Liverpool team.
