Jamie Carragher looking forward to Naby Keita shining for Liverpool

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has said that the Reds have one of the best midfields in Europe but there is still room for improvement. The Merseyside outfit ended the previous season on a high by beating Tottenham Hotspur to the Champions League crown and that ended a seven-year wait for a trophy.


They have carried on the form this season with a strong display in the Premier League and there has been much appreciation for the midfield, where the likes of Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho have impressed. Speaking on TalkSPORT drive, Carragher said that there are no question marks regarding the team selection at the moment, given the Reds have won 17 league games on the bounce.

Jurgen Klopp dismisses talk of a rift between Sadio Mane and Salah

Liverpool
boss Jurgen Klopp has indicated that there is no rift between Sadio Mane and
Mohamed Salah. Mane was understandably furious after he failed to receive the
ball from Salah in a goalscoring position against Burnley and the frustration
was quite evident even after his substitution at the closing stages of the
game.

Speaking
exclusively to TalkSPORT, Klopp said that Mane and Salah have forgotten the
incident and everything is fine between them, he told: “There’s nothing left.
It’s something we left immediately after the game. There was a little talk. It
was Monday when we met first after our international break and everything was
fine. Training was brilliant, the boys are fine with each other, they like each
other! That’s how it is and that’s how it was before. Football is high emotions
and the only problem that we have is that all of our emotions are shown in
public – and I like that.”

Jamie Carragher lauds Arsenal’s summer transfer business

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has lauded Arsenal’s business during the summer transfer window and believes the north London side can have a genuine crack at the top four this season. The Capital outfit suffered a disappointing end to the previous campaign as they finished one point behind the Champions League places while suffering an embarrassing 4-1 loss to Chelsea in the Europa League final.


Thereafter, they were fears that the Gunners may not strengthen the squad sufficiently with just a £40m budget on the table but the club have certainly surprised many with as many as six purchases including the club-record £72m arrival of Nicolas Pepe from Lille. Speaking to Sky Sports, Carragher said that the Gunners will certainly not compete for the league title this term but they have the credentials to make another strong push for the top four positions.

Carragher hoping Liverpool sign some players before the transfer deadline

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has said that he is hopeful the Reds can pursue a quality signing before the transfer window closes next week. The European champions have secured the services of teenage duo Sepp van den Burg and Harvey Elliot this summer but neither of them are expected to feature predominantly with the first-team next season.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Carragher acknowledged that the club are short in the left-back department with the departure of Alberto Moreno while they may require another creative midfielder in their ranks, he said: “I’d like them to bring someone in. I still think we’re a little bit short at left-back. [Alberto] Moreno’s gone. I still think a creative midfield player [is needed but] the front three is a difficult one for managers and clubs when you’ve got such a set front three.”

The Switzerland international sustained the damage during the Nations League third-place play-off against England last month and it appears that he has not completely recovered from the setback.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Klopp acknowledged that Shaqiri is still in the treatment room as a result of the calf tear and he could be out for a while, he said: “Shaq is still injured from the national team and it will take a while until he is in again. He has a tear in his calf, so he will not be involved for a while.”

Jamie Carragher drools over the possibility of Liverpool signing Dutch defender

Liverpool legend-turned-pundit Jamie Carragher has praised the qualities of Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt after watching the Dutchman in action during the recent Champions League campaign. The 19-year-old skippered Ajax up to the semi-final stage of the elite competition where they suffered a shock late defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.

Speaking to The Star, Carragher was asked about a potential target for the Reds this summer and he happened to mention De Ligt, who recently celebrated a domestic double with Ajax. He added to laud the centre-back’s development at such a young age and believes the teenager is destined to make the top, he said: “You look at De Ligt and, for me, it’s almost a guarantee he’s going to be a top player. He’s a man. It’s unbelievable what De Ligt is doing at 19-years-old. The performances we saw him give in the Champions League were outstanding.”

Jamie Carragher urges Callum Hudson-Odoi to decline new Chelsea contract

Liverpool legend-turned-pundit Jamie Carragher has urged Callum Hudson-Odoi to turn down a new Chelsea contract at the current point of time. The England international will be entering the final year of his deal during the summer, and Carragher believes the same should be used as a leverage to secure more gametime with the Blues.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Carragher said that Hudson-Odoi should not rush to commit his future to the west London giants, considering he has recently earned a regular role in the Premier League. He added that the Blues graduate should extend the contract standoff until the forthcoming season to find out whether he remains an important figure at the club.

Jamie Carragher sends warning to Manchester City ahead of season run-in

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has said that Manchester City may have to overcome concerns related to fatigue as they seek to secure a historic quadruple this term. The Citizens have been flawless with their performances for most of the season and they are currently favourites to retain the Premier League title despite the strong challenge from Liverpool.

In a report covered by The Irish Independent, Carragher said that the Citizens have not had to guard against complacency over the course of the season and that could become a factor in the final months of the campaign. He added that the players will be tested on the mental and physical sides of their game in the forthcoming weeks and this could make or break their dream of sealing an unprecedented quadruple.
