Carragher reckons it is ‘an absolute nightmare’ to play against Liverpool

Jamie Carragher reckons it must be ‘an absolute nightmare’ to play against Liverpool after watching his former side beat Tottenham at Anfield this weekend.

The Premier League leaders restored their six-point advantage at the top of the division with a 2-1 victory over Tottenham on Sunday, goals from Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah sealing a comeback win after Harry Kane had opened the scoring after just 47 seconds on Merseyside.

Liverpool dominated the contest in what was an impressive performance for Jurgen Klopp’s side, and Carragher believes the club’s relentless style of play makes them a different proposition to champions and title rivals Manchester City.

“I thought Spurs looked more dangerous in the second half. Going forward, they obviously had the chance from Son,” Carragher said on Sky Sports.

“But Liverpool are just the better team. They just steamrolled them. That’s a Liverpool performance. Man City don’t win games like that.

“Man City win games differently and they look better on the eye so you think that City are a better team when you watch them in terms of how they play and the amount of chances they create.

“But actually playing against Liverpool is non-stop. Every time they couldn’t get out, someone is on top of them every time they get the ball out. Win the ball back and they go again.

“Yeah, Liverpool don’t have De Bruyne in there, they get the creativity from the full-backs but it’s just non-stop. They must be an absolute nightmare to play against, Liverpool.”
