Carragher admitted that he had underestimated Gueye's all-round ability.
“I think I have underestimated how good this lad is on the ball," he told Sky Sports.
“His passing tonight was fantastic and I didn't know he had that in his game.
“Considering what I and maybe some others thought of him as a player to win challenges and tackles, he passes and wants the next ball as well.
“He's not thinking like a defensive midfielder that wants to get back and do his job.
