Jamie Carragher wary of Brighton threat

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher expects a tough game when his side takes on Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup fifth round this weekend.

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has told his teammates not to expect an easy game when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup fifth round this weekend.

The Reds host the Championship side at Anfield on Sunday having knocked out bitter rivals Manchester United in the last round.

"It would be disappointing if we were to go out having knocked Manchester United out in the last round," Carragher told reporters. "But there are no easy games in the FA Cup – I could tell you that from the teams we've been knocked out by over the years.

"We've had some bad results against lower league opposition, but that's what makes the FA Cup what it is. That's why it's so special when you do win it, because you realise the pitfalls along the way.

"Lower league teams can play like they've got nothing to lose when they come to Anfield because they haven't."

Liverpool last won the FA Cup in 2006.
