MICAH RICHARDS was left hilariously embarrassed after Jamie Carragher mocked him in front of Erling Haaland.
Haaland, 22, scored FIVE goals against RB Leipzig in the Champions League last-16 on Tuesday night as Manchester City clinched a 7-0 win at the Etihad and an 8-1 victory on aggregate.
It takes his tally for the season to a remarkable 39 goals in 36 games, with more than two months left of the campaign.
And Liverpool legend Carragher was quick to point out Haaland has now reached the same number of goals scored by Man City‘s entire team in the 2006/07 season.
That was a season in which Richards racked up 34 appearances for the club.
And after Carragher became aware of the statistic, he was quick to bring it up to both Haaland and his despondent colleague.
Speaking to the Norwegian on CBS Sports Golazo after his five goals, Carragher said: “Well, you [Haaland] talk about trying to score more goals. There was an actual Manchester City team who couldn’t score more goals than you.”
He then turned to Richards and added: “And that was the team he played in. In the mid-2000s they scored 39 in a season.
“You’ve got that on your own and we’re only in mid-March. Micah!”
A dumbstruck Richards responded: “Wow, you doing me like that, Jamie?”

Haaland, Carragher and Richards then proceeded to laugh it off as the ex-Man City defender took the jibe in good jest.
It came after Haaland joked Thierry Henry was the only member of the panel that knew how to score goals.
Man City are continuing to search for their first Champions League trophy.
Progress through to the quarter-finals means they have now reached the last eight in each of the last six seasons.
But they have fallen short of claiming European silverware, losing to Chelsea in the final in 2021, before being beaten in dramatic fashion by Real Madrid in the semi-finals last year.
Pep Guardiola‘s men will be hoping Haaland is the missing piece of the jigsaw.
The former Borussia Dortmund man has already bagged ten goals in six Champions League appearances this season.
He is the top scorer in the competition ahead of Mohamed Salah on eight and Kylian Mbappe on seven.
