`Liverpool’s poor results and performance,` Carragher wrote on social network

At Anfield on April 11, coach Jurgen Klopp replaced six players from the starting lineup against Man Utd last weekend, when Joe Gomez, Kostas Tsimikas, Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott and Cody Gakpo started.

Liverpool players were disappointed after the first leg of the Europa League quarterfinals at Anfield on April 11.

In the 38th minute, Gianluca Scamacca took advantage of goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher’s mistake to put Atalanta ahead.

On TNT Sports, former midfielder Steve McManaman, who played for Liverpool from 1990 to 1999, criticized the old club for playing at an average level and wanted Klopp to explain about removing many pillars.

Regarding the quarter-final second leg in Italy on April 18, McManaman said: `Liverpool must keep a clean sheet in Bergamo, and it’s difficult to do that.`

Another former Liverpool player, Stephen Warnock, shared McManaman’s opinion, but also praised Atalanta for an excellent performance.

`Atalanta dominated and created a lot of chances,` Warnock told BBC Radio 5 Live.

Klopp said that Liverpool entered the game well, but could not control the game after Scamacca opened the scoring.

On the opposite side, coach Gian Piero Gasperini was proud of the 3-0 victory but assessed Liverpool as an extraordinary club that can score at any time.

`In the return leg, we need to defend and attack similar to today’s victory,` Gasperini expressed.

According to British media, Klopp’s decision to rotate the squad and let many key players rest yesterday shows that he is inclined to prioritize the championship race in the Premier League.
