Jamie Carragher has claimed he’d prefer Liverpool to beat Basel on Tuesday night rather than Manchester United at the weekend if he was to choose between the two.
The fierce rivals meet at Old Trafford on Sunday with both teams coming into the match in wildly different to circumstances to their last meeting earlier this year.
But with Liverpool on the verge of progression to the second round of the Champions League, Carragher believes a win against Basel would be more important than beating United.
In the midst of voicing his opinion to his near 400,000 followers, there was still time for a quick dig at United as he claimed he’d ‘rather qualify for the Champions League than beat the 7th best team in the Premier league last season’.
Question for Lfc fans- win tonight or Sunday? Tonight for me, rather qualify for the CL than beat the 7th best team in the Prem last season!

What Carragher fails to mention is that United are currently six places ahead of Liverpool who are closer to the bottom of the Premier League than the top and who, still, haven’t even won the Premier League.
That being said, no wonder Carragher is so keen for Liverpool to win because folklore beckons…
