Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher aims brilliant swipe at Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the head coach

Premier League table-toppers Liverpool will take on struggling Manchester United at Old Trafford after the international break.

Jamie Carragher aimed a brutal jibe at Manchester United when he was asked whether there has already been t-shirts printed saying that Liverpool are Premier League champions. 

The former Liverpool defender responded by saying that there are t-shirts printed saying 'how bad are Manchester United?'. 

When Brendan Rodgers was in charge of Liverpool, they were games away from winning the title, with some fans prematurely printing t-shirts declaring that they were title winners, only for them to lose out towards the end. 


Speaking to Drive on TalkSport (09/10/2019 at 6:15 pm), Carragher was reminded of those infamous t-shirts, as he shared his thoughts on Liverpool being eight-points ahead. 

On whether any T-shirts have been printed yet saying Liverpool are champions: "Yes, how bad are Manchester United?" Carragher responded on TalkSport.  

On Liverpool already being champions: "We will see. If Liverpool can gain an eight-point lead over Manchester City, then Manchester City can claw that back over 30 games. I think if Liverpool are in this position with about eight to 10 game to go, that's when you will be thinking it's Liverpool's to lose. 

"But Liverpool's next two games are Manchester United away and Tottenham at home. It's always difficult for Liverpool to go to United. The record is not great there."

Jurgen Klopp the head coach

There's no doubt that Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp will be delighted with their eight-point lead, but they will be well aware that there is still a lot to play for, and just like last season, it can change within the space of a few games. 

After the international break, Klopp's players will make the short trip to Old Trafford to take on a United team that is sitting in the bottom half of the table. 

It has been a pretty long time since the gap, both in quality and the table, has been this big between the two clubs, but all of that will go out of the window when that first whistle is blown in 10 days time.
