​Jamie Carragher has urged Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to prioritise the Premier League as the club approach the beginning of a ridiculously packed fixture list.

The Reds still have three more games to play in November, but December will see them feature in a total of nine matches in four separate competitions.

Premier League games against ​Everton and ​Bournemouth are up first, before the ​Champions League clash in Salzburg. They play Watford at Anfield four days later, with two games in two days in the Carabao Cup and the Club World Cup to follow.

Ahead of the congested fixture list, Carragher has claimed the English league title is at the top of Liverpool fans' list of priorities.

He told the ​Liverpool Echo"I know a lot of Liverpool supporters wouldn't say this, and certainly the club couldn't, but nothing can get in the way of Liverpool winning the league. Nothing.

"The Aston Villa game in the Carabao Cup? If Liverpool get through they will have two semi-finals to play then and that cannot get in the way of Liverpool winning the league.

"What I mean by that is do not play anyone in your first XI in that Carabao Cup team. Not one. If Liverpool win the league this year and find themselves in the same position next year I wouldn't be saying that.

"I'd probably be saying 'we are Liverpool Football Club. We should try and win the lot.' But because it has been so long nothing can be allowed to get in the way of Liverpool pushing on and winning the league."


Carragher also revealed the Club World Cup is of massive importance to Liverpool, given it is a competition they have never won before.

He added: "The Club World Cup, for me, is very important. A lot of people outside Liverpool don't understand that. But really it's massive for ​Liverpool. They have never won it before. To be able to say you're the world champions.

"Liverpool have won the League Cup a record amount of times and will have other chances again. It might be another 20 years before we get the chance to become world champions again."
