Jamie Carragher still couldn’t relax even during Liverpool FC’s resounding 7-0 win over Spartak Moscow at Anfield on Wednesday night given their collapse in Seville.

Liverpool required a point to secure their place in the Champions League last 16 after the Reds squandered a 3-0 half-time lead in Sevilla to draw 3-3 in their penultimate group stage fixture.

The Merseyside outfit came from behind to rescue a 1-1 draw with Spartak Moscow in Russia back in October thanks to Philippe Coutinho’s first Champions League goal of the season.

And Coutinho settled Liverpool’s nerves with an emphatic penalty following a foul on Egypt international Mohamed Salah in the fifth minute on Merseyside.

The Brazilian extended Liverpool’s lead when finished off an impressive passing move involving Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Salah.

Firmino got in on the act with a close-range finish as Spartak Moscow’s defence continued to crumble before Mane scored the goal of the night with a superb instinctive volley from James Milner’s cross.

Coutinho started the Champions League clash with the captain’s armband and he completed his hat-trick with a deflected effort to surpass Manchester United’s previous English record of 21 goals in the Champions League group stage.

Late goals from Mane and Salah sealed a 7-0 win to secure a memorable Champions League win.

However, Carragher wasn’t able to relax until Mane’s fourth for the hosts given Liverpool’s recent defensive troubles in Europe.

Carragher wrote on Twitter: “3-0! Now the worry kicks in!!!!”
