Jamie Carragher offered his backing to Jose Reina after the goalkeeper's mistake cost Liverpool three points against Arsenal.
Liverpool, who played the second half with 10 men following Joe Cole's dismissal, were hanging on for a 1-0 win at Anfield before Reina's last-minute gaffe.
Reina failed to collect a cross from the left and, after the ball hit Marouane Chamakh and bounced back off the post, the Spaniard spilled it over the line.
However, Carragher refused to point the finger of blame at Reina and insists his team-mate is still the best keeper in the game.
"I'd have to have a look at it again, but a lot of time you get a foul for that," Carragher told Sky Sports 1. "I know they say they're protected.
"I'd have to see it again, but he's the best goalkeeper in the world and you saw that last year."

Very disappointed

Having taking the lead through David Ngog less than two minutes into the second half, Carragher admits he was disappointed by the manner of Arsenal's equaliser.
"It's the same for any team when you concede a late goal, even if it's 11 versus 11," he said.
"Arsenal played very well in the first half, but in the second half you know what you've got to do. Hopefully you're going to get a goal and we've done that.
"We've defended very well and it's unfortunate to give a goal away at the end. It doesn't matter if you've got 10 or 11, and we're very disappointed it's not even a goal where they've used their man advantage."
