Jamie Carragher Snubs Liverpool, names team to win Premier League title this season

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has backed Manchester City to lift the Premier League title this season ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool. Chelsea managed a 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday to keep their place at the top of the table. But Manchester City’s 2-1 win over West ham meant that Chelsea are now only one point ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side . Liverpool, who thrashed Southampton 4-0 earlier on Saturday, are just two points off the top. Carragher noted that both Chelsea and Liverpool have been impressive so far but still tipped City to defend their title. Carragher added, “It’s been a good weekend for Liverpool but they’ve dropped some silly points this season so I’m with Roy, I think I’d probably just go with Man City. “Liverpool have kept a...

Carragher urges Liverpool to sign Borussia Dortmund star Bellingham

Jamie Carragher has revealed he would 'love to see' Liverpool sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham. The 18-year-old has become one of the most sought after young players in world football. Dortmund were knocked out of the Champions League on Wednesday, and Carragher thinks the news could make Bellingham available. He told Impression Sessions: "[Dortmund] had no Haaland tonight, he was out, so maybe that's the last time that we're going to see Haaland in a Dortmund shirt, in terms of the Champions League, because he will not be happy, will he?" "I just think what will the knock-on effect be on Jude Bellingham, as well? I don't think Liverpool will be in the race for Haaland, to be honest, I think he'll be too expensive."

Thierry Henry, Carragher terms Cristiano Ronaldo big problem for Man United

Arsenal and Liverpool legend, Thierry Henry, and Jamie Carragher have both criticised Cristiano Ronaldo, describing him as the passenger in Manchester United. They accused Cristiano Ronaldo of lack of defensive contribution to the squad and feel the Portugal star is a ‘massive problem’ for the next Manchester United manager. Ronaldo scored again when Man United beat Villarreal 2-0 in Spain in midweek, taking his tally in the Champions League this season to six. He has also bagged four goals and two assists in the English top-flight in what has been a largely productive return to Old Trafford. Carragher and Henry feel Ronaldo’s individual stats are obscuring his detrimental impact on the team. “How can a club the size of Manchester United still rely on a guy who’s [nearly] ...

Mauricio Pochettino told to ‘get out’ of PSG immediately after 2-1 defeat to Man City

Paris Saint-Germain boss, Mauricio Pochettino has been told to get out of the club after he watched his French side lose 2-1 to Man City in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher wants Pochettino to ‘get out of’ PSG as quickly as possible and head to Manchester United if the Red Devils come calling for him. PSG were defeated 2-1 by Pep Guardiola’s City side with Kylian Mbappe putting the visitors ahead before goals from Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus gave City the win. PSG had their Lionel Messi, Neymar and Mbappe front line but Carragher was left thoroughly unimpressed by their performance. He said Pochettino should be looking for the exit door at PSG and hoping that Man United make a move for him. “Pochettino has to ge...

You’ll never win Champions League with Messi, he’s a passenger – Carragher warns PSG

Jamie Carragher has sounded it clear that the presence of Lionel Messi in the Paris Saint-Germain team would cost them the Champions League. According to the former Liverpool star, PSG won’t win the competition as they are ‘carrying three passengers’ in Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. The French side only finished aa runners-up in Group A after suffering a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening. Mbappe gave the visitors the lead but City fired back through Raheem Sterling before Gabriel Jesus scored the winner with 14 minutes remaining.

Jamie Carragher mocks Rio Ferdinand after Man Utd’s 2-0 win over Villarreal

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has told Manchester United to give the vacant permanent job position to caretaker manager, Michael Carrick. The former Premier League star also mocked United legend, Rio Ferdinand’s memorable ‘Ole’s at the wheel’ outburst. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked on Sunday and Carrick was placed as the caretaker manager as the club’s hierarchy search for a more experienced gaffer. Carrick led United to a 2-0 win against Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday night. When United knocked PSG out of the Champions League in March 2019, Rio Ferdinand called on the club to give Solskjaer the United job immediately when he was standing in on an interim basis. He had said, “…Let him sign the contract. Ole’s at the wheel, man. Man United are back!” An...

Man United have only won one of their last four matches under Solskjaer and have suffered defeats to Leicester City, Liverpool and Manchester City recently. But Carragher believes Solskjaer is not being ‘judged solely on the quality of his work’ and that Man United have stuck with the Norwegian because of his ’emotional attachment’ with the Red Devils fans. “There will be those who will argue Arteta should be included in the group alongside Lampard, Pirlo and Solskjaer as a notable ex-player struggling to prove he is an elite coach at the club he played for,” he told The T...

Carragher, Redknapp criticise Becker after Liverpool’s 3-2 defeat to West Ham

Former Liverpool stars, Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp, have criticised goalkeeper Alisson Becker following Liverpool’s Premier League 3-2 defeat to West Ham on Sunday. An own goal from Becker and a goal each from Pabio Fornals and Kurt Zouma ensured West Ham defeated Liverpool. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Divock Origi did score for Jurgen Klopp’s side at the London Stadium. But Carragher and Redknapp believe Becker was partly to blame for all three goals the team conceded. “Oh yeah, he’s got to save it. He [Alisson] should have done better on all three goals, no doubt about that,” Carragher told Sky Sports. “In some ways, I’m thinking, “You know what, I would rather run back”.

Conte is close to agreeing to £15.5million-per-year to take charge at Tottenham after the club sacked Nuno Espirito Santo on Monday.

Man Utd Should Sign Harry Kane or Haaland – Carragher

  Former Liverpool captain, Jamie Carragher, has said Manchester United need a top striker like Tottenham’s Harry Kane or Borussia Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland.

Bruno Fernandes’ goal from the penalty spot in October’s 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur is the only time United have scored against any of their big-six rivals in seven games this season. “If United had [Marcus] Rashford on the left, a new centre-forward, and [Mason] Greenwood supplementing a new right winger, that would address the lack of quality. “You look at the options....

Comparing both goalkeepers, Carragher told Sky Sports: “Mendy is a better goalkeeper – we have seen that since he came in – but he’s not as good wit...
