The Reds took an early lead against Pep Guardiola’s men at Anfield when Georginio Wijnaldum rose highest to head home Adam Lallana’s cross in the eighth minute.

Both sides had chances to score but neither were able to find the second goal as Liverpool continued their fine start to the season under new boss Jurgen Klopp.

Carragher was particularly impressed by Milner and Klavan’s performances for the Reds as Liverpool ended 2016 with a victory.

The former Liverpool defender tweeted:

The win left Liverpool in second place in the Premier League table and six points behind leaders Chelsea heading into their clash with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday afternoon.

Liverpool finished eighth and without a trophy last season following Klopp’s appointment back in October 2015.
