Carragher: Liverpool eager to qualify early in Champions League

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admits they're keen to wrap up their Champions League qualification as quickly as possible. Ahead of last night's 1-1 draw at Atletico Madrid, Carra said: "I think the manager's already mentioned getting through early and ideally that's always what you would want to do. "But the important thing is not to look too far ahead and just to make sure we do go through. "If we do go through early then that'd be great and I'm sure the manager would then be able to switch things around and concentrate on the league.

Ahead of last night's 1-1 draw at Atletico Madrid, Carra said: "I think the manager's already mentioned getting through early and ideally that's always what you would want to do.

"But the important thing is not to look too far ahead and just to make sure we do go through.

"If we do go through early then that'd be great and I'm sure the manager would then be able to switch things around and concentrate on the league.

"That's not just ourselves though, I'm sure Arsenal, Man United and Chelsea are all thinking the same as well.

"But the most important thing is just to make sure we go through to the next round, that always has to be the target."
