Jamie Carragher fears Liverpool FC Premier League title hopes are already over

Both sides headed to Old Trafford in search of their first win of the season at the third attempt, but it was United who looked in control from the first whistle. Goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford settled a deserved home win.

Liverpool were second best all over the pitch, with the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, James Milner and Roberto Firmino in particular struggling with intensity.

The result leaves Liverpool in 16th position, five points behind Manchester City after just three games and Carragher believes such a gap can already be seen as difficult to close.

“Even at this stage the points gap looks big, with the quality of Man City,” he told Sky Sports.

“You just don’t expect a very bad start from this Liverpool team – they have set such high standards, but they are a million miles away from them.

“They need to fix it quickly.”

Liverpool will host Bournemouth and Newcastle in their next two games before heading to the road to make their Merseyside debut at Everton.
