Jamie Carragher says Arsenal are currently the best team in England and believes Liverpool shouldn’t be too despondent following their loss in north London.

The Reds slipped five points behind Arsene Wenger’s men after goals from Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey helped the Gunners beat third-placed Liverpool at Emirates Stadium.

But Carragher, who retired from professional football in May, expects Liverpool to take their chance to make up for lost ground and beat Fulham this weekend before Arsenal face Manchester United on Sunday.

“It should give them more confidence – and it should also mean they don’t get too despondent when they lose a game away to Arsenal, who are the best team in the league at the moment,” he considered.

“Manchester City have lost some games – Cardiff and Aston Villa away. Then you look at Manchester United, who lost to West Brom at home, and Liverpool had the loss to Southampton.

“To lose to Arsenal away is no disgrace – it’s disappointing but we should not get too despondent. You move on, they’ve got Fulham at home [next] and you’d expect them to win that game – and if they do, they’ll go into the international break in a great position.”
