Jamie Carragher discusses Liverpool and Alisson predictions

Title contenders?

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has been speaking about the clubs Champions League heartbreak last season and his predictions for this season.

The Reds fell to defeat in the Champions League final when Loris Karius had a nightmare in goal.

It was later suspected that he had suffered concussion prior to Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale’s goals.

That lead to a painful loss in the final and Jamie Carragher has now been speaking about that final.

‘What happened in the Champions League final with Loris Karius, yes it was disappointing for the Liverpool supporters on the night losing that game, but we’ve all been there as players where you have a poor game,’ he explained to Sky Sports. 

‘But it’s happened in a game which will, unfortunately, be remembered for a long time.’

Season predictions

Now, Carragher has also previewed the new season with much optimism.

One of the biggest deals in the summer came in the form of Alisson Becker and Carragher has also been speaking about that.

“I’m not saying that on the back of the Champions League final but it’s something myself and Gary (Neville) have said so often on Monday Night Football,” he continued.

“Simon Mignolet and Karius are good goalkeepers but not great goalkeepers. That’s not to say the guy they have signed is a great goalkeeper.”

“It’s a great price – a world-record price – and when you pay that type of money you are expecting a top goalkeeper, but he will be new to the Premier League so let’s see how he adapts.”

“He looks cool and calm on the ball and that’s what Klopp wants from his goalkeeper, but they were areas that had to be rectified and it looks like most of them have been. So at this moment, on paper, Liverpool do look the strongest challengers.”
