Wayne Rooney and Jamie Carragher Critique Liverpool's Defensive Failings in Merseyside Derby

Wayne Rooney and Jamie Carragher didn't hold back in their assessment of Liverpool's defensive performance in the Merseyside derby, particularly highlighting the team's vulnerability to set-pieces.

Rooney criticized Liverpool's "school boy" defending for Everton's opening goal, emphasizing the Toffees' repeated success in winning first contacts in the penalty area. He pointed out Liverpool's failure to clear their lines and organize defensively, attributing Everton's lead to their relentless pressure.

Echoing Rooney's sentiments, Carragher lamented Liverpool's repeated mistakes in conceding free-kicks and their overall naivety in defending set-pieces. He specifically questioned the positioning of Liverpool defender Konate and criticized the team's lack of awareness in a high-stakes derby game.

The former Manchester United striker and ex-Reds defender both emphasized Everton's strengths in set-piece situations and highlighted Liverpool's defensive lapses as a key factor in their defeat. With Everton securing a shock victory and Liverpool's title hopes taking a hit, the critique of their defensive frailties becomes even more poignant.
