Liverpool legend Carragher: I don't enjoy watching Klopp's side because...

It's getting harder and harder for Liverpool supporters to enjoy watching their side, according to club legend Jamie Carragher.

The Reds have scored 12 goals and conceded 11 in their first six Premier League games and currently sit eighth on the table.

But Carragher claims that although Jurgen Klopp's team may be the most exciting to watch as neutral, it is excruciatingly nerve-wracking for the Liverpool faithful.

"I think watching Liverpool now is the hottest ticket in town," Jamie Carragher said on Sky Sports.

"I think if Liverpool are on TV, everyone wants to watch.

"But I think if there is one set of supporters that aren't being entertained by it, it's is Liverpool supporters.

"Because entertainment to me means you enjoy it. I was watching Liverpool in the pub, the game was on, it goes 2-0, it goes 3-1, no one can relax.

"Everyone is still on edge because Liverpool in their moment should be killing a team off, either being really strong defensively or saying 'come on' and we'll kill you on the counter attack.

"What Liverpool do is they give them oxygen, even at 2-0 and 3-1, teams think they've got a chance against them because of the history they've shown in the last few years, they always concede goals.

"What Liverpool fans want to see is not so much 3-2s, 3-3s, as we saw at Watford, is street-wise footballers who know what they need to do to go and win a game."
