"It's a fantastic achievement by Martin," Carragher told liverpoolfc.tv. "It's very difficult to play every match the way the modern game is with big squads and rotation.
"There's also the intensity of the games and how many knocks you can get.
"I was hoping that Leighton Baines would maybe get a slight knock on Sunday so he would have to come off and Martin could have the record to himself.
"But it's still great for him."
