Jamie Carragher aims brutal dig at Tottenham after joking that Liverpool match should be replayed

Jamie Carragher has aimed a brutal dig at Tottenham after joking that Liverpool's defeat to the north London side should be replayed.

Luis Diaz incorrectly had a goal chalked off for offside during the Reds' heartbreaking 2-1 defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last Saturday.

The PGMOL have since released the VAR audio of the lapse in communication, with fans spotting one damning moment from the incident.

Speaking ahead of his side's Europa League clash against Union Saint-Gilloise on Thursday, he said: "Something like this never happened, so that is why I think a replay is the right thing to do."

Asked whether Liverpool had asked - or would ask - the Premier League for a replay, the German boss replied: "At this stage we are still going through the information we have."

He added: "The audio didn't change it at all. It is an obvious mistake. There should be solutions for that. The outcome should be a replay. But it probably won't happen.

"The argument against that would be it opens the gates. It is unprecedented. I'm used to wrong and difficult decisions, but something like this never happened."

Carragher jokingly agreed that the game should be replayed. After being asked for his opinion by Tottenham fan account @thespursweb, the former Liverpool defender replied: "Get the replay on! Same teams & officials!! The drama would be incredible!"

@thespursweb then joked: "Let’s replay the Champions League final first!" before Carragher exclaimed: "Deal! Spurs don’t win Champions League finals!!"

However, the Sky Sports pundit later clarified that the game shouldn't actually be replayed, tweeting: "I don’t think there will/should be a replay, but can we stop talking about other mistakes in other games!

"This isn’t the same, officials give decisions they believe to be right, this didn’t happen. It’s unprecedented, hence the fall out."
