The response for many Liverpool fans when Nathan Ake gave Bournemouth a 4-3 victory was to turn the TV off and try to forget about what they had just witnessed.

Jurgen Klopp’s side led 3-1 with just 15 minutes remaining but somehow left the Vitality Stadium empty-handed after a collapse of epic proportions.

But one Liverpool fan couldn’t just pretend it hadn’t happened.

That man was Jamie Carragher, whose job it was to dissect what he'd just seen live in the Sky Sports studio alongside former Everton player Leon Osman.

Luckily for Carragher, the fact that Everton’s match against Manchester United was kicking-off shortly after the final whistle at Bournemouth meant that his attentions could turn to an alternative match.

However, that didn’t stop Carragher from suffering a nightmare few minutes in the Sky Sports studio away from the cameras. Whilst at Goodison Park preparing for Super Sunday’s next fixture, Carragher has revealed how his colleague, Osman, behaved after Bournemouth’s incredible victory.

“Yeah, I was devastated by Liverpool’s loss. Leon Osman was jumping around and celebrating with people in the crowd,” he said on a Facebook Live chat with Sky presenter Dave Jones.

“I felt like saying ‘if you weren’t as obsessed with Liverpool you might have won something, Everton.’

“I was going to say that one time but I couldn’t quite find the time. He didn’t tee me up for it.

“But that’s why I love football, the rivalry.”

While Carragher was saved from talking about Liverpool’s collapse in real detail on Sunday, he will have to do so on Monday Night Football ahead of Middlesborough’s clash with Hull.

And Carragher admitted that they will fully analyse exactly what went wrong for Klopp’s side.

“After the game I had to think ‘did Bournemouth play well?’” he said.

“Liverpool, I called them Borussia Dortmund at their best in the first half, they were outstanding.

“But it’s a common theme and that’s what we’re going to look at tonight - why this keeps happening.

“We’ll try and go as deep as we possibly can into it and some of the reasons why.

“You could possibly do a full hour on that game and what’s been going on at Liverpool, conceding goals in that manner.

“Obviously we haven’t got that long but I’m sure we’ll have a good 10 or 15 minutes on it and look at the reasons why it happened and why it keeps happening and how can they stop it - or will they ever stop it?”

So, if you’re a Liverpool fan, it’s probably wise to give Monday Night Football a miss - unless you really want to relive those horrific 15 minutes at the end of the match.
