Carra looking for minor improvement to lift title

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says the team only need to improve their game slightly on last season to win the club’s first league title since 1990 next campaign.

Speaking in Bangkok ahead of the Reds’ pre-season friendly against Thailand on Wednesday, Carragher said the impressive form they showed in the 2008/09 season will stand them in good stead when the new season gets underway a month from now.

He said, “We had a very good season in the league last year but we realise that if we can improve that by one or two per cent that may be enough and that’s what we’re trying to do,” said Carragher.

“We took Manchester United very close last year and we realise them and also Chelsea will come back and maybe Manchester City as well so there’s a lot of competition

“Hopefully the pre-season games we can improve and get better and make sure we’re ready for Tottenham and go one step further than we did last year.”
