Carragher takes dig at Man United amid title race talks
- Recently Carra was reminded of Liverpool prematurely printing out t-shirts declaring the title win in 13/14 season.
- However, when asked if the Reds started to print t-shirts once again he responded with a cheeky swipe at Man United.
- He reminded the host of the poor state the Red Devils are at.
- But in all seriousness, he doesn't exclude City clawing back the lead over 30 games.
8-point lead, 24 points gained, the biggest-ever gap between the first and second place after 8 games - it's all in the Reds hands once again. And there were few precious occasions where it didn't quite turn out great for Liverpool.
For instance, during the last stages of 13/14 campaign, the Reds were ahead of Man City by 2 points. And they infamously printed t-shirts that prematurely celebrated the long-awaited title win. And they went on to painfully lose the crown.
As much as the Reds want to forget the ending of that season, the rival fans keep reminding of those t-shirts. And during a recent talkSPORT show Carra encountered such a mockery precisely.
However, the Anfield legend was quick to respond in style taking it out on Man United's current misery.
When asked whether Liverpool have already started printing out t-shirts Jamie responded: "Yes, how bad are Manchester United?"
Yep, not the most inventive roast but, to be fair, neither is the question that provoked it.
Carra then added: "We will see. If Liverpool can gain an eight-point lead over Manchester City, then Manchester City can claw that back over 30 games.
"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."
Actually, out of the Reds' next 4 fixtures, 3 are truly challenging indeed with Man United, Spurs and City among the rivals. The first one is scheduled on October 20 and will take place at Old Trafford.
