The Anfield legend took aim at his former club after they fell to a fourth consecutive Premier League loss, which was also their fourth home defeat in a row.
"Liverpool have been so poor, they have got everything deserved," said Carragher while co-commentating on the match.
“They can't keep saying 'Virgil van Dijk is out'. I'm sick of saying it myself."
Carragher has now clarified why he was so scathing about Liverpool - but explained why he will not apologise to supporters upset by his comments.
"I come off shows like this or commentating on Liverpool and if you're an Everton supporter, a Manchester City supporter, a Manchester United supporter, you say: 'Carragher - biased for Liverpool, all he says are positive things'.
"Premier League champions, European Cup-winners, best team in the world - there was not a negative to say. Right now there is.
"If that upsets some Liverpool fans, I don't apologise for it because what this team has done is amazing, we love them, but it doesn't mean they're exempt from criticism.
"And I said on the TV, 'I'm sick of talking about Virgil van Dijk'. What I mean by that is we've highlighted that on this show, the bigger picture.
"Liverpool can't win the league. I said that after the last derby game (in October). They can't win the league with Van Dijk being out for the whole season, I didn't feel.
"So that's the big picture, but the problems Liverpool have - the defenders are out, midfield players are at centre-back - does not mean they can't win home against Everton, Brighton, Burnley, West Brom, Manchester United maybe, Manchester City - real quality.
"But it's not an excuse for individual games. No matter what problem you have as a Liverpool player, you can't not win at home for six games - that's not acceptable."
