Jamie Carragher responded quickly to Martin Tyler’s claim that he upset Liverpool players last month
Jamie Carragher didn’t hold back in his appraisal of Liverpool’s 1-0 loss to Bournemouth on Saturday.
The Reds suffered their eighth Premier League away defeat in the early kick-off, losing ground on Tottenham Hotspur in the race for fourth place. Antonio Conte’s team took advantage of Liverpool’s mistake, defeating Nottingham Forest 3-1 in north London.
Newcastle United, who were in action against Wolves on Sunday afternoon (4:30pm kick-off), were seeking to add to Jurgen Klopp’s top European ambitions. The Magpies reclaimed fifth spot with a 2-1 win over Julen Lopetegui’s side.
The former Liverpool defender was at Saint James’ Park for the weekend’s final Premier League match, and it was the commentator, Martin Tyler, who brought up an incident from the Reds’ triumph in the North East last month.
Despite winning 2-0, Carragher chose Magpies winger Allan Saint-Maximin as his Player of the Match. The voice of Sky Sports’ Premier League broadcast suggested that some Liverpool players were irritated by the decision.
“It’s Saint-Maximin… who you elected man of the match versus Liverpool, and the Liverpool players, I can tell you, weren’t happy afterwards since they won the game 2-0,” Tyler explained. “I was with you, and I thought he was fantastic.”
In light of their recent setback at the Vitality Stadium, Carragher was quick to voice his thoughts, adding, “I wasn’t happy with them yesterday.”
