"We had no chance for Lukaku", Klopp added.
Speaking after Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Newcastle, Carragher said: "Because he doesn't play much now, whenever we talk about Sturridge we keep going back to that season when Liverpool almost won the league - he was devastating with Luis Suarez". We have, obviously, our hard moments; other teams will have hard moments.
"I love the manager".
"Jurgen is someone I know well, so I don't want to put any pressure on but he has the tools and the potential and I think they can win trophies". There is a lot of excitement about. "And we have Dom Solanke for sure the biggest English talent in the number nine position". Of course, it could have been a little bit better if chances had gone in or individual errors could have been avoided.
Against Newcastle, Carragher thought Liverpool were in total control when going ahead through Coutinho after 29 minutes, only for Shelvey to unpick the visiting defence seven minutes later and Joselu apply the final touch.
"I am very confident that this season can be a success, whether that be in the league or in Europe or the FA Cup. I am a big, big believer in this manager".
The German is, of course, right to back his side at this early stage but after the worldwide break things don't get any easier for the Reds with Manchester United coming to Anfield and a trip to Tottenham on the horizon.
The Belgian has enjoyed a scintillating start to life at Old Trafford and will head into the clash at Anfield on October 14 with 11 goals under his belt after just ten games.
"I don't think that player is there now, whether that's due to injuries or not playing enough".
"The frustrating thing for Liverpool at the moment is the worldwide break after a couple of games where they feel they should have done better". I think he is a flawless role model and an ambassador for the game. "With one good result or a couple of good results, they will find themselves back in the top four".
