Arsene Wenger Running Out of Excuses for Arsenal’s Poor Form, says Jamie Carragher

Arsene Wenger truly appears to have run out of excuses in the last few weeks.

The defeats against Watford and Chelsea has effectively ended any hopes of winning the league title for yet another season. Meanwhile, the club were hoping to achieve an extended run in the Champions League. Even this was brought to an end by a 5-1 loss against Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League. Realistically, the FA Cup remains the only hope for a title this season. This trophy has been able to provide some respite for the manager in the last decade.


Liverpool fans have turned on their beloved coach Jurgen Klopp after the string of losses the team has suffered of recent.

Liverpool suffered three straight losses ahead of their clash with Chelsea on Tuesday. They were thrashed by Swansea in the Premier League at home then they suffered a shocking EFL Cup semi final exit in the hands of Southampton before losing to Wolves in the FA Cup.

Jamie Carragher Brands Ibrahimovic As the Best Signing of the Season

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher reckons that Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the player of the season so far.

The Swedish striker came to Old Trafford on free transfer from Paris St Germain, and he has set the goal charts on fire. Even though he is costing the club a reported £ 260,000 per week in terms of wages, Carragher reckons that Ibrahimovic being signed on a free transfer makes them incredible value for money indeed. The 35-year-old has netted 16 goals in all competitions for the club, who have paid around £ 5 million wages so far.

Jamie Carragher Heavily Criticises Performance ofLamine Kone

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has branded the performance of Sunderland defenderLamine Kone, in a recent match against Arsenal, as unacceptable.

Arsenal enjoyed a 4-1 comfortable win over Sunderland, but they were given a major scare in the second half when Jermain Defoe scored a penalty. At that point, the game was just 1-1 with less than 30 minutes left on the clock. It looked like David Moyes, who has endured a terrible run upon his return to the Premier League, as they dispatched an unlikely point or two against the gunners.

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.

This positive start of the season has allowed Liverpool to collect 23 points and secure the 4th spot of the Premier League.


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.


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.
