Jamie Carragher was left pleasantly surprised by Liverpool's second-half showing during the draw with Manchester City.

The Reds were second best during the first 45 at Anfield, though went into the break with the score level at 0-0.

Jurgen Klopp's side stepped up a gear in the second half and went ahead twice, though were pegged back each time.

And Carragher admitted he didn't expect Liverpool to perform as well as they did after half-time given their earlier performance.

"I think disappointment because Liverpool found themselves ahead twice, certainly with the second one," the former defender said on Sky Sports.

"But at half-time, Jurgen Klopp and the players would’ve bit someones hand off for a draw.

"I didn’t see where that second half performance was going to come from for Liverpool in terms of the energy but these two teams are amazing, the managers are fantastic.

"A point shared today but what these two have given us over the last three years and I wouldn’t say we ever write them off, we know they’re great teams.

"But I questioned half time where Liverpool were going to find the energy from to take this City team on and they do."

Reds manager Klopp was appreciative of the break, adding: "Thank God that there were two halves today because the first half was obviously exactly like you shouldn’t do it against City and the second half was exactly like you should do it against City.

"Four goals obviously happened in the second half but in the first half I can’t remember a chance from us, if I’m right.

"So I was really happy about the half-time whistle so that we could adjust a few things.

"And actually we didn’t change anything, we just told the boys again what we actually wanted to or should have said already in the first half."
