& # 39; I'd rather lose Mohamed Salah than Sadio Mane & # 39 ;: Jamie Carragher believes Senegal star is more important to Liverpool in title run

  • The Reds legend says that Mane is more important to Liverpool during the title run
  • The attackers were in inspiring form for Jurgen Klopp this season
  • Both were on the score sheet during Liverpool & # 39; s 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher underlined the importance of Sadio Mane for the title challenges of Jurgen Klopp by claiming that he would rather lose Mohamed Salah than the Senegalese star.

Salah is considered the Reds talisman after scoring more than 50 Premier League goals in just two seasons with Anfield.

But when Carragher was asked if he should hypothetically lose one of Mane or Salah, he immediately replied: & # 39; Salah. & # 39;

While talking about Monday Night Football prior to the Arsenal-Watford trip, Carragher praised the former Southampton man as the catalyst of Liverpool's transformation under Jurgen Klopp.

He said: & # 39; I am a huge fan of Mane. People talk about Jurgen Klopp, the signing sessions of Salah, Van Dijk, incredible.

& # 39; Mane has received Liverpool back. If you think he was Klopp & # 39; s first major signing, he paid £ 30 million.

& # 39; He was the signer who brought Liverpool to the top four. The next season was the Champions League final, this season it's a challenge for the title. & # 39;

Carragher also emphasized the importance of Mane's goals this season. He scored in the crucial wins at Crystal Palace, Chelsea, Fulham and Burnley and also helped his party collect important points against Leicester and West Ham.

He added: “It's not just scoring, being top, achieving goals when it's 4-0 and hitting a couple at the end of the game, it's the importance of the goals Mane gets.

& # 39; You think about it and I think it sometimes goes under the radar. You have Salah, Van Dijk at the back, the keeper.

& # 39; Liverpool goes for a first title in almost 30 years. He is the best broad player that Liverpool has had for 30 years.

& # 39; You must go back to John Barnes since Liverpool has had such a broad player. & # 39;
