MOTD pundit and former Liverpool player
When I look at what is going wrong for Liverpool at the moment, a lot of it stems from the engine room of the team - the midfield.
The biggest problem I have there is with Jordan Henderson and Emre Can playing together in the Reds' 4-3-3 formation.
They both play too many sideways balls, which are pretty looking and keep possession - but do not hurt the opposition.
Five teenagers have been arrested after a handgun and drugs were seized in Knowsley.
Police searched a property in Kirkby yesterday and found cannabis, cocaine and what is thought to be heroin, as well as a firearm and ammunition.

The 27-year-old, who is on the front line in Raqqa, said fighting IS was for "humanity and all oppressed people".
The former maths student at the University of Liverpool is the first known woman from the UK to successfully travel to Syria to join the fight against IS.
Anti-IS forces have been trying to recapture Raqqa since it became the group's defacto capital in 2014.
England player Alex Scott "would've loved the opportunity to have a competition like this when I was younger".
What's she talking about? The FA People's Cup - the country's biggest free five-a-side competition which gives you the chance to make your way to Wembley.
"When I was younger, playing in a football cage, the dream was always to play at Wembley," adds Scott.
"The FA People's Cup gives anyone the opportunity to sign up to a local team in your area. You don't have to rely on your mates.
"It's a chance to meet different people, socialise in different environments. It's more than just signing up, you can get so many benefits from it."
So what are you waiting for? Sign up for the FA People's Cup - but hurry as the deadline for entries is the 19 February!
