Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher tore into Virgil van Dijk following the error which led to Leeds United’s second goal at Anfield on Saturday. Van Dijk failed to deal with a bouncing ball and his attempted clearance only reached Leeds striker Patrick Bamford, who poked past Reds goalkeeper Alisson.
In a thrilling start to Liverpool’s Premier League title defence, Leeds had already pegged Jurgen Klopp’s side back once.
Mohamed Salah opened the scoring before a fine Jack Harrison goal from the visitors.
Van Dijk restored the hosts’ lead with a powerful header from a corner but his joy was short-lived.
Carragher, who was co-commentating on the match for Sky Sports, claimed the Dutchman took it too easy up against Bamford and was “arrogant” with his play.
“It’s a brilliant game,” Carragher said.
“I said hopefully after 17 minutes we’d get 90 minutes of this. This could be 7-7 at the end of the game.
“Alisson is not happy, he gets between the centre-backs there. Virgil van Dijk, that’s just too arrogant.
“Just tries to flick it round the corner to Andy Robertson instead of dealing with it.
