Jamie Carragher praises Liverpool’s early form

Former Liverpool player and current Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher, has recently praised what Liverpool has accomplished in these early stages of the Premier League as Jurgen Klopp and his squad have so far battled against 10 other clubs and they have managed to claim 7 victories, 2 draws and only 1 loss out of these 10 opening league encounters.

JAMIE CARRAGHER LAUDS DANIEL STURRIDGE

While speaking about Daniel Sturridge, Jamie Carragher has lauded the Liverpool's multi-talented striker, Sturridge whilst placing him amongst the greatest striker to have ever featured for The Reds.


On the other hand, Carragher also said that Sturridge has to learn from Roberto Firmino. Having featured in 99 appearances for Liverpool, Sturridge has been able to score 55 goals. Yet, this season has seen the Liverpool superb striker struggle to keep up a regular position for Liverpool.

Carragher Disappointed with José Mourinho’s Approach against Liverpool

Jamie Carragher expressed his disappointment at the way Manchester United played in the recent goalless draw with archrivals Liverpool.


Much was expected of this encounter on Monday night, but it turned out to be a disappointing display from both teams. However, it was largely as a result of Manchester United setting up shop and being happy with a point. Carragher says that he this is not the way a club like Manchester United should approach a big game. However, he admits the fact that José Mourinho is unlikely to change his management style, which has been hugely rewarding over the last decade.

DID CONTE WANT LUIZ?

Jamie Carragher reckons it’s the Chelsea hierarchy and not Antonio Conte who was behind the buy of David Luiz.

In the view of Carragher, there is never a surety over a Blues’ coach remaining in the office for the next season. Whoever is in that job can be slapped a sack anytime and that’s why they actually don’t leave it on the coach to buy someone and rather people sitting up on the top themselves decide who to buy. So, it was not a case of Conte wanting Luiz and buying him, it was rather a case of the hierarchy buying him and handing him over to Conte.

According to Jurgen Klopp, the Premier League is tougher than La Liga

Even though Jurgen Klopp has never been in charge of a club in the Spanish League, La Liga or even competed in a Spanish club, this has not stopped him from voicing his thoughts concerning which European League is in his opinion the most difficult one to obtain success and according to the recently appointed coach of Liverpool, it’s the Premier League.


"Play on December 24, play on December 26, I love my family but for me I prefer to play football. But then we play December 28 and 31, and January 2 and I am thinking: 'OK, now we need three teams for this.'"

Jamie Carragher comments on Diego Costa Yellow Card

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher says that Chelsea forward Diego Costa should have at least been given a second yellow card for his tackle on West Ham goalkeeper Adrian.


Chelsea opened the new Premier League campaign with a home match against West Ham. It did not take long for Costa to get his first booking of the match. The Spaniard became a victim of the new campaign from referees to stop excessive complaints coming their way during the games. After Chelsea were not given a penalty, Costa complained excessively and was given a yellow card.

Jamie Carragher feels that the national team has been unable to translate the qualification form

Former England defender Jamie Carragher feels that the national team has been unable to translate the qualification form into the Euro 2016 largely because of the absence of a game changer.


England have one of the youngest squads at the Euro 2016 and it is full of exuberant talent like Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley, and Dele Alli. There are also experienced a name like Wayne Rooney in the mix, but England seem to be largely relying on the aspect of surprise. They have done reasonably well to qualify into the last 16 round of the Euro 2016 without any issues.

Jamie Carragher on England elimination

Jamie Carragher stated that England perform poorly at the Euros, and this is probably the worst performance at an international tournament.

Jamie Carragher believes Tottenham Hotspur deserved the 2nd spot

According to the former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher, Tottenham Hotspur deserved to have finalized on a higher position than Arsenal in the Premier League standings as the team of Mauricio Pochettino had a better season but ultimately had to settle with the 3rd place of the top tier English League standings.


“I don’t think the big thing should be finishing behind Arsenal. If you ask me who had better season, I’d say Spurs. They were challenging for the title. At some stage, you thought they could win the league. With Arsenal that went away in February or March.

CARRAGHER BACKS HODGSON’S FINAL EURO 2016 SQUAD

Former England international and well known Pundit, Jamie Carragher commended the choice of England manager Roy Hodgson for his final squad selection for the Euro 2016 tournament in France. Pundit Martin Keown also agreed with Carragher.

There are concerns that the manager is going into the tournament where England are among the favourites to win with very young players who have been long-term injured and/or shown no decent form in recent times.

The coach dropped known title winner Danny Drinkwater and in-form winger Andros Townsend from his initial 25. He went ahead with other young players and some players that are not in their best form.
