Liverpool's players are adamant that they will be back in Manchester United's faces again in next season's designate race. Defender Jamie Carragher, following his on-field bust-up with team-mate Alvaro Arbeloa, and goalkeeper Pepe Reina have led the disobedient call.
And Carragher exposed it was his irritation at poor defensive that led to the nearly match with Arbeloa in Sunday's 2-0 win at West Bromwich Albion. He said: "It was just frustration, nothing more, it was over with quickly. We cannot win the league now but there are a number of objectives we can intend.
"We wanted to remain a clean slip and we want Pepe Reina to have a chance of the Golden Glove for the third season running. Pepe is one behind [Edwin] Van der Sar now and there's a chance Van der Sar won't play next weekend for Manchester United, so we wanted to make sure Pepe got a clean sheet at West Brom, and again next week in our final match.
"To be honest we were a bit apathetic in our defending all through the game at the Hawthorns and they had too much possibility. Maybe we took it a bit too easy and let them assault us too much, but that was one of the harshest games I've played in all season. We go all over Europe playing top teams and we play against the best sides in this country, but that was one of the hardest games we have had."
Jamie Carragher revealed the only reason why himself and Alvaro Arbeloa were in conflict was the fact they were anxious to keep a clean sheet and help Reds keeper Jose Pepe Reina catch Manchester United's Edwin Van Der Sar in the race for this season's Golden Glove award..
We want Pepe to have a chance of the Golden Glove for the third season running ... Pepe is one behind Van der Sar now and there's a possibility Van der Sar won't play next week, so we wanted to make sure he got a clean sheet today."
I know people can say, it's nice to see that players care about the club and all that waste, but you can't have two players on the same team skirmishing with each other. Its schoolboy stuff, I think both players should be mature enough to know you can't be doing that in front of the 1,000's in attendance at the Hawtorns today and the millions of people watching the game at home.
