Jamie Carragher apologises to Liverpool fans about Philippe Coutinho
Jamie Carragher heaps praise on Philippe Coutinho after Liverpool's 4-0 thrashing of West Ham
Jamie Carragher heaped praise on Philippe Coutinho after Liverpool’s thumping 4-0 win over West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday kept their top-four bid on track.
A goal from Daniel Sturridge, two from Coutinho and another from Divock Origi wrapped up a comfortable win for Jurgen Klopp’s men at the London Stadium.
The result lifted the Reds up into third place in the Premier League table ahead of their final game of the season against Middlesbrough at Anfield next weekend.
Win that game, and Liverpool will secure a place in the top four and qualification for next season’s Champions League.
Carragher was clearly delighted by the victory and apologised to Liverpool fans for gushing with praise over Coutinho after the game.
Liverpool legend Carragher tweeted on Sunday afternoon: “Great result for @LFC @WestHamUtd poor but had a few injuries. Apologies for talking about Coutinho so much but he was f*****g brilliant!”
Liverpool finished in eighth place in the Premier League table last season and without a trophy following Klopp’s appointment at Anfield in October 2015.
