Their side were trailing 2-1 at the break after Watford twice took the lead through Stefano Okaka and then Abdoulaye Doucoure.

"I spoke about (Virgil) Van Dijk (of Southampton) where he's not playing or not training, there's no problem wanting to move, it's part of the game but there is a line you don't cross where you ruin your own reputation and that needs to stop".

It was a superb season opener at the Emirates Stadium live on Sky Sports Premier League, with Olivier Giroud heading home an 85th minute victor to seal the three points for the Gunners.

Liverpool have heavy interest in Southampton centre-back Van Dijk, who has handed in a transfer request, but Carragher believes his former club have fundamental flaws in their defensive set-up, which signing £60million-rated Van Dijk alone will not fix.

'Nothing changes, again. That first half was like Liverpool at their worst last season so then you've had a pre-season and nothing's changing. What are they looking at?

"You think about where you were week last season, set pieces, getting done on the counter attack". Watford should've been one-nil up before the corner, nothing changes. "Nothing changes. What have we done pre-season?"

"I think (Virgil) Van Dijk's agent has got another 20 grand a week on his contract", said Redknapp. "They need a leader to head that ball clear".

"But I don't care how good a centre-back, getting exposed on counter-attacks, you've got to cover the full width of the pitch, it's nearly impossible". "Firmino can attack the ball!"

"There's talk about Van Dijk coming in, yeah okay he's a good player, but it's from the side of the pitch, it's the way Liverpool set up".

'They play so high and wide that they have a centre-back exposed there all the time.
