‘You may have heard Carragher yelp and he’s on his knees… that noise will be my ringtone next week!’: Gary Neville delights in co-pundit’s reaction to Alisson’s ‘absolutely awful’ blunders gifting Manchester City goals in win at Anfield
- Alisson gave the ball away for Phil Foden to tee up Ilkay Gundogan for his second
- The Brazilian was then at fault again for Manchester City’s third as they ran riot
- He passed the ball to Bernardo Silva, who set up Raheem Sterling for a header
- Gary Neville was quick to rub Liverpool’s misfortune in the Reds legend’s face
- Liverpool are now 27 points worse off than they were at this stage last season
Gary Neville revelled in Jamie Carragher’s despair as the inseparable Sky Sports duo watched Liverpool crumble to a 4-1 defeat at Manchester City as their slim title hopes were all but extinguished.
Goalkeeper Alisson was at fault for the visitors’ second and third goals, giving the ball away for Phil Foden to tee up Ilkay Gundogan for the German’s second before the Brazilian lost his bearings again and sent another stray pass in the direction of a City shirt, with Bernardo Silva gratefully latching onto the ball before finding Raheem Sterling for a close-range header.
Neville was quick to rub Liverpool’s woes in Carragher’s face.

The Brazilian couldn’t believe his eyes after another lapse led to Raheem Sterling making it 3-1
The Manchester United legend said gleefully: ‘You may have heard Carragher yelp; he’s on his knees next to me here! That noise will be my ringtone for the next week. Can you do it again?’
Carragher couldn’t believe what he was seeing from the usually dependable 28-year-old.
‘Absolutely awful from the goalkeeper. Just get rid of it,’ the former Reds centre back said.
Jamie Carragher is increasingly worried about whether Liverpool will finish in the top four
Alisson’s two errors made it the first time that a Liverpool goalkeeper had made that many mistakes leading to goals since Loris Karius’ infamous display in the 2018 Champions League final against Real Madrid.
The champions are now 27 points worse off than they were at this stage last season and are languishing in fourth, 10 points off Pep Guardiola’s men having played a game more.
‘Liverpool are going out of the title race, but it’s bad for Liverpool’s top-four hopes as well, admitted Carragher after the match.

Phil Foden was at his silky best and capped off a clinical visiting display with his side’s fourth
‘Those top-four positions are up for grabs. That would have been unthinkable at the start of the season when thinking about Liverpool.
‘This is the first time under Jurgen Klopp when real questions are starting to be asked. The manager and the team have done so much. It’s the first time in five-and-a-half years where things aren’t going to plan and are not really expected.’
Ilkay Gundogan had put Guardiola’s side in front just after the break having missed a first-half penalty, and after the German and Sterling had put City out of sight, Foden rounded off a clinical display from the blue half of Manchester to became the youngest player to score and assist in a Premier League game against Liverpool at Anfield.
