Carragher: This Liverpool team better than 2005 Champions League winners

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher is convinced his old club can go deep into the Champions League.

Going all the way to the final in May maybe a big ask for Klopp's men but the Kop legend knows all about defying the odds in Europe.

“Yes, Liverpool are big outsiders this season," Carragher told the Liverpool Echo.

“But this team is better than the Liverpool team I played in that won the Champions League in 2005.

“It will be tough against Porto but it's a winnable tie and if we get through that who knows what could happen.

“With all the talk about getting into the top four and qualifying for the Champions League for next season, we shouldn't forget that we're still in the competition this season.

“I'm going over to Portugal myself next week and hopefully we can get a good result and see where it takes us."
