  • - Carragher: "I knew the night before, I was down to play at centre-half but Bjorn Kvarme's clearance came through before 5pm that night but I didn't realise. I wouldn't have been playing only that Patrik Berger was sick that night, so there was a place and I was moved into midfield. I was a bit nervous, but it was more excitement really. I got booked after 20 seconds, that calmed me down."
