Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has admitted that there are two players within the Tottenham Hotspur squad which cause him concern.

Carragher, who now works as a television pundit lifted the Champions League trophy during his time at Liverpool in their 2005 victory against AC Milan in Istanbul.

Surprisingly the ex-central defender has not included Harry Kane as one of the players which he think could have a major say in the outcome of the final at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium tomorrow evening.

Carragher has identified Christian Eriksen and Heung-min Son as the two Spurs stars who will pose Jurgen Klopp’s side the main threat.

Spurs go into the game having never played in a European Cup final in their history, while Liverpool has previously won the trophy on five occasions.

He admitted that he feels sorry for Eriksen due to the lack of rest he gets, while also highlighting Son’s pace as a worry.

Asked about Spurs’ main threats, Carragher told The Anfield Wrap podcast: “I think the ones who fear me are probably [Christian] Eriksen and [Heung-min] Son. 

“Son’s power and pace and Eriksen’s ability on the ball. 

“I feel sorry sometimes for Eriksen. He’s that important for Tottenham that you have to play him every game. 

“Sometimes you see him he actually looks a little bit tired or not quite himself. 

“When he’s on it, he is a massive player for them.”
