Jamie Carragher has insisted that nothing must come in the way of Liverpool and the Premier League title.

Liverpool look very strong in their pursuit of the Premier League title. The leaders have managed to get a six-point lead over second-placed Manchester City. But Jamie Carragher has warned his former side to tread lightly.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher wants the Reds to concentrate totally on the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp’s men are through to the quarter-finals if the Carabao Cup. But Carragher suggests Klopp not to play any of his first-choice players against Aston Villa.

“I know a lot of Liverpool supporters wouldn’t say this, and certainly, the club couldn’t, but nothing can get in the way of Liverpool winning the league. Nothing,” he was reported saying by Daily Mail.

“What I mean by that is do not play anyone in your first XI in that Carabao Cup team. Not one.

“If Liverpool win the league this year and find themselves in the same position next year, I wouldn’t be saying that.

“Winning the FA Cup or League Cup will not make any difference to Jurgen Klopp, so for me the Napoli game (in the Champions League next week), Liverpool have to win, so they can almost write off the last group game.

“If Liverpool were to win that and the league this season – to add to the Super Cup – it would be incredible,” Jamie Carragher said.
