Jamie Carragher was left impressed by the nature of his old club’s victory against city rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby.
The Monday Night Football host predicted that both sides would be due a ‘big end to the season’ – albeit polar opposites as far as their respective ambitions are concerned – with the Reds fighting for a quadruple whilst the Toffees look to retain their top-flight status.
