Video: Liverpool’s Ragnar Klavan Gifts Southampton Goal After Horror Clearance

We imagine Liverpool defender Ragnar Klavan will struggle to get to sleep tonight after he helped gift Southampton a goal in the EFL Cup semi-final.

The Estonian centre-back was partnering Dejan Lovren at the heart of the Reds’ defence for the first-leg at St.Mary’s against Claude Puel’s out-of-form Saints.

But the home side didn’t need to work terribly hard for their opening goal after Klavan’s horrendous error.

With Southampton breaking at pace, Klavan had a perfect opportunity to put the ball into row Z but inexplicably managed to completely miss-queue his clearance – allowing Nathan Redmond a simple opportunity to slot past Loris Karius, which he took:

A school boy error indeed.

There’s still a long way to go in the tie, with Southampton required to travel to Anfield for the second-leg, but if that goal proves to be costly, Klavan will have a lot of explaining to do.

What do you make of the incident?
