Carragher told Sky Sports: ‘When you see Liverpool put in a performance like that it makes you feel, ‘How has it been that bad for a lot of the season?’
‘When you win by a shock scoreline it almost knocks a bit of the celebration because Manchester United become the story more.
‘Klopp didn’t fist pump the Kop as you’d expect because I think of the scoreline and it feels like you’re rubbing it in, in some ways.
‘It gives Liverpool a huge fillip in terms of getting in the top four.
‘It’s really important that in terms of what they could do in the summer financially and maybe a player they could bring in.
‘There’s a lot of talk of Jude Bellingham and lots of clubs going for him.
‘I still can’t believe the games Liverpool have lost, the performances they’ve put in, they’ve still got a great chance of making the top four.
