Jamie Carragher’s commentary for Liverpool’s winner v Spurs yesterday was sensational!
Our former centre-back, who is very openly still an enormous fan, screamed, ‘MO SALAH, YOU LITTLE DANCER!’ after the Egyptian’s header was eventually bundled into the net by Toby Alderweireld.
We’ve already replayed it about 100 times, actually. If we hadn’t have got that last minute winner, we’d have been level on points with Manchester City today – meaning we’d have needed to win every game from now until the end of the season and hope Pep Guardiola’s side dropped points in two matches – considering their superior goal difference.
Effectively, we’d have been out of the title race – but now it’s neck and neck again.
“I don’t apologise. I’m a massive Liverpool fan and I’m desperate for them to win the league,” Carragher told the Independent.
“Liverpool didn’t play well and were lucky. Sometimes in competitions, you start to think ‘is our name on it’ as Liverpool have had luck today.
“You go back to the Merseyside derby with the Origi goal. It was Tottenham that looked more likely to win in the second half but it’s been one of those days for Liverpool.
“As a player, you’d be bouncing into that dressing room at Melwood but they’ll know they’d have to improve.
“Again, Liverpool weren’t at their best. But Jurgen Klopp called it before the game about how the nerves will play a part at different times. He said that this is the time to enjoy it.
“I can’t say many Liverpudlians were enjoying this. History tells you that to win a title, you have to score late winning goals, and Liverpool have done it so often this season.”
City have Cardiff midweek, which will be a walkover, while we travel to Southampton on Friday evening.
The Saints are in a relegation battle and always get up for their matches with us, largely because of the number of players we’ve poached from St. Mary’s.
Nothing less than a win will do before the Champions League clash with FC Porto next week.
