GARY NEVILLE has cheekily hit back at Jamie Carragher’s claims that Manchester United will not finish in the top four – insisting Liverpool have little hope of landing the title – going by his colleague’s sleeping habits.
The Sky Sports double act have been seen regularly trolling each other and disagreeing on several subjects over the years on Monday Night Football.
And despite a faultless start from the Reds, winning all six of their Premier League games to date, Manchester United legend Neville is unsure whether Jurgen Klopp’s men can maintain their upwards surge.
Though, Neville believes they will have a far better chance of winning the league – should they ditch the Champions League.
Those claims were recently rubbished by Jurgen Klopp and Mohamed Salah.
Working as a pundit for Sky yesterday, Carragher said that he believed United, as well as Arsenal, would struggle to land a Champions League place.
He commented: “On the evidence of what we’ve seen I’d say Arsenal or Manchester United from what we’ve seen in these opening six games. The others look a little bit further up.”
Neville, who had a 20-year association with United as a player, clearly didn’t take too kindly to Carragher’s comments and when the perfect opportunity arose he got his own back.
He posted a picture on Instagram of the ex-Liverpool defender asleep with the caption “What chance have they got of winning the league if they can’t last a night?”
There’s sure to be a lot more funny exchanges and banter between the pair as the season continues.
Liverpool currently top the Premier League with 18 points – two points ahead of the champions Manchester City.
Jose Mourinho’s men lie seventh – eight points off Klopp’s men already at this early stage of the campaign.
