Speaking in Wrighty House With Arsenal legend Ian Wright, Carragher said that the current Arsenal team is capable of winning the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

He said, ‘It kind of reminds me of us in Liverpool with Gerard Houllier, where he got rid of (Paul) Incey, Phil Babb, (Jason) McAteer, Robbie Fowler, that Roy Evans kind of era.

Then it was like me, Danny (Murphy), Stevie Gerrard, Michael Owen, John Arne-Riise, some foreign players, this young team came together.

“We never won the League or the Champions League, but we won some trophies and that is the team that I like the most when I look back on my career because there is nothing better than playing with your teammates.

“I think these guys (from Arsenal) in the next two or three years will need more to win the league or the Champions League, but they could win a couple of FA Cups or Carabao Cups.”

Players such as Carragher, Gerrard and Owen became staples of Houllier’s Liverpool squad during the Frenchman’s tenure at the club from 1998-2004.

The climax came in the 2000-2001 season, where Liverpool won a consistent treble in the UEFA Cup, FA Cup and League Cup.

Carragher is impressed with Arsenal’s current group of young players, including Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramsdale.

Speaking about the goalkeeper, he said he has “never been more wrong” about a player’s ability than the £ 30 million summer signing from Sheffield United.

Carragher has admitted he was wrong about Aaron Ramsdale's skill as a goalkeeper.

Carragher said: ‘Since I became an expert I have probably not been the most popular person among Arsenal fans as they have always been really poor.

“ This is the first time that I feel almost excited because while I do not think that Arsenal can compete with the best teams, when you have young players, you feel that you can support it and almost accept performances and results at certain times due to age. of the players.

‘That will go eventually as they get older, but I love Saka, Smith Rowe and when you like someone or a team and you do the work that I do. When you go to a game you think “I hope you do well, I hope you win tonight.”

“ I had that feeling when you played against Aston Villa, not because I don’t want Villa to win, but when you go to games where you like a certain team or certain people who are only human and you can’t help but think ‘like to see him do well. “.

“ I was delighted that Smith Rowe made the score against San Marino. I really like watching him play. When I watch him play I hope he scores.

‘It seems like there is something going on at Arsenal right now, it feels like there is a union. The goalie, I mean, if I’ve ever been more wrong with a player than Aaron Ramsdale, then I still don’t know which one it is.

Carragher still feels Liverpool will have an advantage over Arsenal when they meet on Saturday.

Despite praising the Gunners’ current crop of stars, he believes Liverpool will have the upper hand when the teams meet on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s team comes into the game with just one point in their last two matches since their 5-0 win over Manchester United.

He said: ‘They (Arsenal) have to go for them, as Liverpool’s big problem this season is conceding goals. The amount of goals he has conceded is incredible. However, the amount of goals they scored is off the scale, so we could play a great game.

“ I’m really looking forward to it, but I only know (Jurgen) Klopp and these players, they have an incredible mentality and I think they will be prepared knowing what happened in these last games.

“I would be very surprised if Liverpool didn’t win that game, nothing to do with Arsenal. It will be a quick start and if it were Arsenal I wouldn’t be playing from behind. ‘
