Jamie Carragher Gives Liverpool Fans Some Perspective After 7-0 Win

Jamie Carragher Gives Liverpool Fans Some Perspective After 7-0 Win

Jamie Carragher has provided Liverpool fans with some perspective after their team’s 7-0 win over Spartak Moscow last night.

Jurgen Klopp’s men sealed top spot in their Champions League group and a better draw in the last 16 of the competition with a heavy beating of the Russians at Anfield.

And it was a win inspired by the flair and quality of attacking quartet Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Coutinho scored a hat-trick while Firmino got two and both Mane and Salah got a goal each – with some of the moves behind each goal a joy to watch.

So you can understand why supporters are delighted with their team and excited about the prospect of winning trophies this season if they can keep all their best players fit.

But Carragher has jokingly asked for caution from supporters after last night’s game.

He pointed out that a team he played in back in 2008 (it was actually 2007) won 8-0 against Besiktas and they had players like Andriy Voronin, Yossi Benayoun and Peter Crouch in their attack:

Of course, Coutinho, Mane, Salah and Firmino make up a much better attack than the one that beat Besiktas 10 years ago, but it’s a funny comparison from Carragher all the same.

There’s optimism around Anfield after Liverpool’s recent results and Klopp will be hoping they can kick on now to make an impact in the Premier League before resuming their European campaign in February next year.
