Home record will cost us says Carragher

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher fears that his side’s lack of home victories will ruin their chances of Champions League qualification, The Sun reports.

The Reds’ 0-0 draw with Stoke City on Saturday left them seventh placed in the table and with a record of seven home draws already this season. Dalglish’s side have only scored 14 goals at Anfield this term and whilst they are not losing, they haven’t won enough games at home. Carragher has struggled to get in the Liverpool defence ahead of Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel at centre back, but the 32 year old played well against Stoke this weekend.

Carragher was disappointed that his side did not follow up their 1-0 win away at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City in the Carling Cup, but remains optimistic about his side’s chances. The veteran Liverpool defender believes that the problem will be addressed and they can still get into the valued top four.

‘It wasn’t the result that we wanted, but Stoke are a tough nut to crack and they have proved that a lot of times this season. It’s been a problem a few times at Anfield this season. We need to sort that out before the end of the season to get where we want, which is obviously the top four. It is a bit of come down from Wednesday, but we have had that plenty of times this season’, the 32 year old said.
