Carragher: Critics harsh on 'remarkable' Liverpool

Pointing the way Georginio Wijnaldum celebrated after Liverpool's second goal in the Premier League leaders 3-0 win over Bournemouth at Anfield

The 28-year-old Dutch global, who scored a superb goal in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Bournemouth despite suffering from a stomach upset, admitted two successive draws had been a setback as the club chases a first league title since 1990.

Liverpool may be level pegging on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, but Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has admitted it will be a "real struggle" for them to lift the title in May.

However, this is not the case in the Championship as teams go out looking to win every game and this subsequently leads to some of the games of the season. The only thing we get annoyed about - not nervous about - is that we want to win every game.

"The win against Bournemouth just puts that negativity and the talk of nerves and all that to bed". It's March and April where you can't afford to make mistakes. It's not a bad place to be at this stage.

"City today have won 6-0 and you're thinking, with it being almost 50/50 in possession, were they that good?"

"We fought for everything and got the result that we needed".

Saturday's match against Bournemouth finally saw summer arrival Naby Keita show the sort of form which persuaded Klopp to spend £43million on the Guinea worldwide.

Mohamed Salah's 20th of the season came after Keita's outside-of-the-foot through-ball had been backheeled into his path by Roberto Firmino.

His overall performance was more in tune with what fans were expecting after seeing his displays in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig. They still have that chance, but it has become a lot more hard in the last week. "If Liverpool are picking their best team, Fabinho plays in midfield", said Carragher of the Brazil midfielder.

We now take a look at the pivotal matches of the recently concluded round of matches in the most exciting league in the planet. I said I was as positive as I can be. I think that's how it will have to be for Liverpool. At times Jurgen has used him tucked in wide on the left. When the team doesn't play well, people look at you because you're the new player. That's where you need experience. Klopp is taking his squad to a training camp in Spain.

He made his return from an ankle injury in the second half of the 3-0 thrashing of Bournemouth on Saturday, and his assessment of the atmosphere was telling.

Sadio Mane reached his own personal landmark by scoring in a fourth successive Premier League match for the first time, although his close-range header from James Milner's cross had a suspicion of offside.
