Jamie Carragher: Raheem Sterling deserves 'everything he gets'

Alexandre Lacazette denied Liverpool all three points with a late equaliser in north London.

Despite this sublime start to the campaign, an unbeaten start at that, the Reds are still only third in the table as Chelsea and Manchester City seek to outdo this brilliant Liverpool side.

Liverpool fans on social media have been surprisingly downcast since the 1-1 draw.

Carragher highlighted statistics which show only Mohamed Salah has more goals and assists combined in the Premier League since the start of last season to justify why he deserves a big pay rise.

"We are hearing reports that Sterling is on the verge of signing a big contract and maybe there are eyebrows raised because of the figures involved, but when you look at the stats, he is in the company of players who are earning those figures and people are saying are the best players in the league", he told Sky Sports.

"You'd think Liverpool had just lost the league with the reaction after the game, that it was two points dropped, Man City are two points clear - there's a long way to go".

Jurgen Klopp's men have done a far better job of keeping pace with the Manchester club this season and now trail the league leaders by two points.

Sterling scored twice in England's 3-2 Nations League win in Spain last month and Carragher believes he must find more consistency in global football.

Carragher outlined how the Reds can beat Man City to the title.

"Last season it was like that, when we reached the Champions League final and also did very well in the Premier League, although City managed to open a good lead and did not give anyone a chance to catch up".

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has claimed that Raheem Sterling is as important to Manchester City as Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Sergio Aguero.

"It doesn't make sense to think like that because it puts you in a situation where you feel like you are not in charge".

"It's like it is, and hopefully it stays like this until the end of the season. It is probably the most exciting season for years".
