Jamie Carragher brands Liverpool ‘mentality midgets’ in brutal commentary during Fulham loss

Liverpool succumbed to yet another home defeat as they were beaten 1-0 by relegation threatened Fulham.

The Reds have been in dismal form recently and they were well off the pace in the first-half.

Fulham had numerous opportunities to score before Mario Lemina struck just before half-time.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were better after the break and nearly equalised through Diogo Jota.

The Portuguese forward fired a spectacular volley at goal but his effort was well saved by Alphonse Areola.

However, that was as good as it got for Liverpool as they failed to find a leveller.

Liverpool look a shadow of the team they were last year.

Klopp once labelled his side ‘mentality monsters’ but it’s fair to say they are not living up to that billing.

In fact, Jamie Carragher, who was on commentary duty for the game on Sky Sports, decided to mock that comment in savage fashion.

As Liverpool were faltering to another defeat, Carragher said on commentary: “Last year, that man there [Klopp] rightfully called his team mentality monsters and rightly so. They deserved that title.

“But right now they are more like mentality midgets.”
