Carragher still happy with Liverpool despite their impressive UCL win

Jamie Carragher criticised Liverpool's Champions League last-16 display against RB Leipzig despite the Reds' 2-0 victory, claiming his former side 'didn't create an awful lot'.

Second-half goals from Mo Salah and Sadio Mane gave Jurgen Klopp's side a much-needed boosted after three straight Premier League defeats - with Liverpool now in firm control of their European knockout tie.

The Reds also struck the bar through Andy Robertson's long-range effort and Roberto Firmino had a goal disallowed after Mane took the ball out of play, but Carragher was still not satisfied with the attacking intent showed by Liverpool.

He told CBS' Champions League coverage: 'I saw a Liverpool performance that I have seen in the last few weeks. Liverpool's energy, the pressing has been there for a few weeks and it was there from the start.

'I am not trying to take anything away from that result. That's a magnificent result. That team is just behind (Bayern) Munich in the Bundesliga and they did really well in the Champions League last season.

'But the actual goals scored were on the back of mistakes and they were clinical. They still didn't create an awful lot in the game. Again, I am not being critical.

'But they haven't created an awful lot. Then one mistake, the ball has gone into the opposition net, and that could have happened tonight even though they got away with it because of the goalkeeper at 0-0.

'For how well Liverpool played tonight, they still didn't create an awful lot tonight themselves. For me, going forward that's still a problem.'
