Jamie Carragher's tweet on Liverpool's third-round FA Cup exit vs Wolves

Jamie Carragher

Liverpool's FA Cup exit at the hands of Wolves has sparked a lot of debate.

Jurgen Klopp fielded a weakened team against his fellow Premier League outfit, with Dejan Lovren and James Milner the only players staying in the side from the Manchester City defeat.

The likes of Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Alberto Moreno and Naby Keita were all given their chances and none of them proved a point to Jurgen Klopp.

Moreno in particular struggled, with his future at Anfield surely all but over.

It begs the question, why did Klopp field such a weak side when Liverpool have only won one trophy in the last 12 years?

Well, the argument to that is the fact that the Reds are four points clear in the Premier League table and will also be one of the favourites for the Champions League.

And Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher put the whole thing into perspective for Liverpool fans with a well-worded tweet following the loss.



The Sky Sports regular wrote: "I have no problem with the @LFC selection from JK & would rather we had won but, we have the best chance we’ve had in years of winning the PL & it may be yrs before we’re in this position again. The big chance we have is not the 4 point lead but MC/THFC playing a lot more games."

The reaction from Liverpool fans to the tweet says it all.

Liverpool's priorities certainly do lie elsewhere, as the Reds have not lifted the English title since 1989.

Carragher also responded in brilliant fashion when an Everton fan tried to question his tweet.



Well played, Jamie.

Liverpool's next Premier League fixture pits them against Chris Hughton's well-drilled Brighton side and three points will be the minimum requirement for Klopp.

Tottenham host Manchester United, while Manchester City take on Wolves on the Monday Night Football.

Klopp vs Wolves

The title race is well and truly on.
