Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville were full of praise for Liverpool on Monday Night Football following their 4-1 demolition of Manchester City on Saturday.

The Reds produced the perfect high-pressure display and stunned the Etihad with their swift attacking movement to leave Manchester with all three points.

And Anfield legend Carragher described the Merseyside club's scintillating performance as 'like the Red Arrows' and claimed the first 35 minutes was as good as anything he could remember. (Watch Neville and Carragher's full analysis below)

Speaking on the Sky Sports show, as per the Mail, the former defender said: "The first 35 minutes was a good as anything I can remember. Not just from Jurgen Klopp but any Liverpool team in the Premier League, especially going away to a big team.

"For Liverpool supporters in their 40s or 50s, that run [Firmino's for Mangala's own goal] is Ian Rush running on to a Kenny Dalglish or a Jan Molby pass.

"It was like the Red Arrows, watching Liverpool. Those runs, going through people all the time."

"For Liverpool supporters in their 40s or 50s, that run is Ian Rush running on to a Kenny Dalglish or a Jan Molby pass.


Carragher is right, Liverpool performance in the first-half was something to behold and brought back memories of their free-flowing best in the Dalglish era and their 2013-14 campaign.

Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho caused consistent problems for City's defence and, amazingly, Liverpool achieved this result without an out-and-out striker.

With Daniel Sturridge close to a return, Christian Benteke sitting on the bench and Firmino showing his best form, Klopp now has an embarrassment of riches to choose from the in the attacking positions.

Jordan Henderson is also close to a return, and things are beginning to look good for the Anfield club.
