Career in Pictures: Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher
Third time lucky
Carragher managed to score just four goals for Liverpool in over 700 games for the club, so it will come as a surprise to learn that the defender netted his first goal on just his third senior appearance.
After making his first-team debut against Middlesbrough in the League Cup on January 8, 1997, and then following his Premier League bow against West Ham United just three days later, the centre-half headed home Liverpool’s opening goal against Aston Villa in a 3-0 league win at Anfield on January 18.
Though, he didn’t feature for the rest of the 1996-97 campaign.
