Liverpool hero Carragher pinpoints where Klopp went wrong

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has pinpointed where his former club went wrong this season.

The Reds finished on 97 points for the season, one point behind champions Manchester City.

And Carragher believes Jurgen Klopp's side should have taken more points from the Citizens.

He told Sky Sports: "Liverpool have a manager who is an optimist and will feel he can challenge again next season, but if City are going to get 96, 98, 100 points it's very difficult to stop.

"The only thing Liverpool can look back with at regret is they didn't beat City.

"You can't expect other people to take points off City if you don't do it yourselves and Liverpool only took one from six against City.

"Next season they have to look at those games as cup finals and beat them, although that's easier said than done!"
