Carragher wowed by two ‘outstanding & brilliant’ Liverpool stars during Newcastle win: ‘That’s Karma’

Posted by

Jamie Carragher was blown away by the performances of Liverpool’s ‘outstanding & brilliant’ midfield duo of Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho after the pair were crucial in securing a terrific comeback against Newcastle.

The latter registered the all-important winning goal eight minutes into the extra allotted time after the Magpies’ persistent time wasting antics cost them dear.

The Merseysiders are set to next take on city rivals Everton at Goodison Park this Saturday with Frank Lampard’s men still searching for their first Premier League win of the season.

Whilst exciting that we already possess a couple of young gamechangers in the former Fulham Academy duo, the reality remains that such pressure simply shouldn’t be heaped on the pair’s shoulders so early in their Anfield careers.

It’s difficult to see Jurgen Klopp relying on any other option at the moment, of course, given that both Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita remain sidelined whilst Curtis Jones has only just returned from his spell in the injury room.

A new signing would go some way to alleviating concerns in that regard, though we at the Empire of the Kop aren’t expecting much in the way of further business for the side at this late stage of the window.

In the meantime, Carvalho and Elliott’s ongoing positive contributions can only mean great things for the future of the midfield.
