Dalglish believes Liverpool can cope without Gerrard and Carragher

Over recent years the loss of talismanic defender Jamie Carragher, and Captain Steven Gerrard has been said to be the catalyst Liverpool’s poor form during their absence. They were once seen as so integral to Liverpool’s ambitions, but according to Dalglish that is no longer the case.

However, mass investment has seen Liverpool’s strength in depth arguably become the best it’s had over the past few seasons. The summer arrivals of Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing, Sebastian Coates, Jose Enrique and others means that their manager is confident in facing life without Gerrard and Carragher.

He told the Daily Mirror, “We would much rather have both of them available, but if they aren’t then we can’t walk about with self-pity. We have to brush ourselves down and get on with it. I don’t think at the end of last season we’d have coped as well without Carra and Stevie as we have now.”
