Jamie Carragher predicts which trophy Liverpool FC will win this season

Jamie Carragher is confident Liverpool FC will win the Champions League this season after beating Villarreal on Wednesday night.

The Merseyside side took a big step towards the Champions League final with their 2-0 victory over Villarreal at Anfield in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.

The Reds will now prepare to travel to Spain for the second leg on Tuesday night as they attempt to set up a final showdown with either Real Madrid or Manchester City.

Liverpool FC, who have already lifted the League Cup trophy this season, are back in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime when they take on Newcastle United, with the Reds currently just one point behind leaders Manchester City at the ranking.

Liverpool FC legend Carragher isn’t entirely convinced the Reds will win the Premier League this season but he expects the Merseyside side to claim Champions League glory.

Talk to CBS Sports After Liverpool FC’s victory over Villarreal, Carragher said: “I think Liverpool will win the Champions League. The league, I’m not so sure, Manchester City have the slight advantage that if they win all their games, they’ve won the league.

“This weekend is absolutely vital for the Premier League. It’s a tough task for Liverpool, given the hours of execution the manager has mentioned.

“If Liverpool can go through this weekend still being in the same position as with Manchester City, I still think they have a great chance with the league, but that’s up to Manchester City.

“But the Champions League, it feels like it’s Liverpool’s competition and they have a foothold in the final and I don’t think anyone else can say that.

“I think Madrid will pass. When you miss so many chances in the first leg, you have a huge problem. It’s a great game that stands out.

Liverpool FC last won the Champions League in 2019, when they beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the final.

The Reds are also in contention for the FA Cup title this season, with Jurgen Klopp’s side hosting a final encounter with Chelsea FC at Wembley next month.

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC boss Klopp has heaped praise on Sadio Mane after the Senegal international helped fire the Reds to victory over Villarreal on Wednesday night.

“Wow! He’s playing an exceptional season, Sadio is an exceptional player,” Klopp said. is what I like the most.
