Jamie Carragher has criticised Paris Saint Germain for their underhand tactics against Liverpool during their Champions League clash at the Parc des Princes.

The Reds went down 2-1 on the night after Juan Bernat and Neymar strikes either side of a James Milner penalty, which leaves them facing an uphill task to qualify from Group C.

Jurgen Klopp's men must now win by a 1-0 scoreline or by two goals or more when they face off against Napoli at Anfield on December 11, while PSG face a tough away trip to Red Star Belgrade on the same night.

Despite the fact Liverpool were outfoxed in midfield and run ragged by PSG's electrifying front three, ex-Red Carragher was disgusted by the theatricality from several members of the French outfit, singling out Neymar and Thiago Silva specifically.

"It was very frustrating with Neymar, even in the first half, watching him tonight was embarrassing," he told Viasport post-match.

"We are talking about one of the best players in the world, but if he continues that throughout his whole career, he's going to be remembered for the wrong reasons.

"It leaves a sour taste in the mouth. Thiago Silva, the captain and a centre-back, rolling around in the corner - they are are a great team with great players and don't need to resort to these tactics.

"[The PSG players] should be embarrassed. I don't know how they go back and speak to the families and wives in the player's lounge.

"Rolling around on the ground like that... the only time you see that is children at kindergarten."

Carragher went on to assess Liverpool's chances of getting the result they need against Napoli to qualify for the knockout stages, stating that while he expects them to win the match, they may still ultimately struggle to progress.

"I expect Liverpool to win the game, but I don't know whether or not they can win by two goals, that's what makes it more difficult," he added, before referencing Liverpool's last European Cup win 11 years ago.

"In 2005 we had to beat Olympiakos by two goals and we won that one. We did okay in 2005."

Klopp must now dust his players down quickly ahead of a return to Premier League action on Sunday when they host local rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby.
