Jamie Carragher fumed in Liverpool vs Man Utd at rule which will cause injuries

Footage from the Sky Sports commentary box shows Jamie Carragher growing frustrated at the offside rule during Liverpool’s clash with Manchester United.

The two Premier League high-flyers battled to a goalless draw at Anfield with the visitors creating more chances.

Trying to utilise their pace on the counter attack, United were caught offside eight times during the fixture, with seven of them coming in the first half.

Though the linesmen tended to keep their flag down until the end of the attack, in line with new rules due to VAR.

And Carragher was not impressed, believing somebody will get injured should referees continue to wave play on.

While on commentary, he fumed when Marcus Rashford was offside: “It’s so obvious he’s offside.

“He’s in front of him, just put your flag up. Someone will get injured eventually with this.”

Carragher may have been hinting at the injury Virgil van Dijk suffered earlier in the season, challenged by Pickford when flagged offside.

The clash between Liverpool and United ended goalless, with the Reds now having gone three Premier League games without scoring.

  • Jurgen Klopp left frustrated by Man Utd’s approach which is ‘worst thing in football’

Jurgen Klopp said: “We try and we don't score or we try and we score – that's a big difference, to be honest. [Jordan Henderson] is right, we have not to worry about it but obviously we work on it.

“It's not that we ignore the fact and just hope it will be good again. We did that but the only possibility you have to score goals is to create situations and to be ready to fail and to do it again.

  • Henderson frustrated over 'strange' call which denied Liverpool chance to beat Man Utd

“That's a massive difference between when you are flying and you score with pretty much each chance you have because then you deal with the missed chances better.

“I saw my team playing tonight and I saw a really good football team with a clear idea, with super passes, great counter-press and great desire to score – but we didn't score.

“We will create chances and we will score, but I know, now we face Burnley on Thursday and they are not famous for conceding an awful lot of goals.

“Then a few days later we play again against United and they obviously defend with all they have.

“It is not that we just decide from now on we want to score again and now we will do it, but I see the boys really in the situation and I will help as much as I can so that we change it as quickly as possible.”
