After scoring decisive goals against Chelsea, defender Jamie Carragher have lavished praise on Maxi Rodriguez

The Argentine opened the scoring in the league meeting between the two sides at Stamford Bridge 11 days ago, while in the Carling Cup on Tuesday, the midfielder was at it again to help The Reds through to the last four.

Maxi's impressive scoring run last season means he has 10 goals in his last nine Liverpool starts, and club legend Carragher is impressed.

"Maxi is a top player," Carragher said. "He probably doesn't play as often as he would maybe like but whenever he comes in he does a great job.

"We're talking about a top international who has played in World Cups."

The Reds cruised to their second win over Chelsea in over a week, with Martin Kelly adding to Maxi's opener.

Andy Carroll had early missed a first-half penalty, driving the ball straight at goalkeeper Ross Turnbull, but the visitors rallied to reach the semi-finals.

"I think it's fair to say we deserved it," he added.

"We missed a penalty as well and I don't think our 'keeper had too many saves to make.

"It's a competition we've taken very seriously from the start. You could see that with the team the manager put out."
