Liverpool legend Carragher left 'bitter' after seeing title triumph denied

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher admits seeing them pipped for the title was tough to take on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp's side beat Wolves 3-1 on the final day after two late goals, but City pipped them to the championship after coming back from 2-0 down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Carragher said, "There is no doubt, it's a bitter pill to swallow. At no stage today were Liverpool top of the league. Even though Liverpool won 3-1, they didn't get those goals until City were 3-2 up. It will be tough to take. We have to congratulate City for that, to come back from 2-0 down was so vital. Credit to them, they're a great team.

"As I said before the game, no one expected too much, but it's the hope that kills you.

"I expect more trophies in the future because of the manager and the players that Liverpool have. Get tonight out of the way, rest and recover then you're playing the biggest game you can play. That could really make this season one to remember.""
