“I don’t think losing the extra point here with that late goal will make or break how we finish the end of the season,” said Carragher.
“We have still got a bit of catching up to do on Tottenham, they only drew.
“There have been plenty of times this season when we thought European qualification had gone. Wigan at home, West Ham away.
“But then you get a couple of good results after those and you think it’s back on.”
“It’s a massive game for us. City have spent a lot of money and are a team full of a lot of big stars but hopefully that will be the type of game we need to get back on track after this defeat.
“We have got some big games coming up, unfortunately we’ve picked up a few injuries and it’s even more important now we stick together until the end of the season.”
