Gary Neville is treating Man Utd "like a small club", slams Jamie Carragher

Jamie Carragher hit out at fellow Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville for treating Manchester United like a “small club”.

The two Premier League legends often clash and were at it again during Monday Night Football.

They were analysing the weekend’s clash between Liverpool and Manchester United, which saw the Red Devils remain at the top of the Premier League.

The visitors had the better of the goalless draw at Anfield, though appeared to be a bit more reserved as the clock ticked towards the 90 minute mark.

On that, Neville said: “I understood why it wasn’t a bit gung-ho and going for it – even though part of me in the game thought if they were a bit further ahead in their development, a bit further ahead in their journey and experience, they'd have gone for it. But they’re not.

“Seven weeks ago the manager was getting sacked, the players were getting booted out, [Mino] Raiola was talking about [Paul] Pogba… they were all over the place.”

Though Carragher hit back at Neville’s comments given the previous success seen at Old Trafford.

The former Liverpool defender said: “What’s this journey? You are talking like Manchester United are this small club.

“It’s Manchester United. You tell us they are the biggest club in the world.

“You don’t have to be a champion team to smell something in the game.”

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had been happy with a point against the reigning Prem champions, though admitted it could have been more.

He said: “I know we can play better, but we’re still coming away from here with a point which shows how far we’ve come in a year or even six months.

“We didn’t impose ourselves on the game, especially in the first half. I think we grew into the game and towards the end you felt ‘yeah, it’s here for us to win’ and we created two massive chances and they were two brilliant saves by the keeper.

“I’ve got to be honest to say I’m a bit disappointed at the moment, but still you know you’re playing against a fantastic team and they had more of the possession.

“But still you want to go here and you know the injuries they’ve had lately, you think you go here and get a result. We didn’t, but a point might be okay if we win the next one.”
