Jamie Carragher: Why thought of Liverpool v Everton final makes me feel sick

Jamie Carragher says he has mixed emotions about the prospect of an all-Merseyside League Cup final

Jamie Carragher has explained why he has mixed emotions about the prospect of an all-Merseyside League Cup final after Everton edged to a 2-1 victory over Manchester City in the first leg of their last-four clash.

The Toffees had two goals disallowed for offside at Goodison Park on Wednesday night before Funes Mori broke the deadlock from close range in the first half.

However, Spain international Jesus Navas levelled the first-leg tie in the 76th minute after the winger finished a sweeping counter-attacking move from the away side.

But Roberto Martinez’s side reclaimed the lead just 180 seconds later after Romelu Lukaku headed their winner, although the striker suffered an injury as a result of his goal.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher is hesitant about the prospect of an all-Merseyside League Cup final after the Reds were 1-0 winners at Stoke City on Tuesday night.

Liverpool host the Potters at Anfield on Tuesday 26 January before Everton make the trip to Man City on 27 January.
