Man Utd v Man City: Match in pictures
Manchester United succumbed to two second half Manchester City goals at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup semi-final clash, meaning they will not be going to Wembley in April. This led to Jamie Carragher seizing the opportunity to rinse his old friend Gary Neville on Twitter.
Jamie Carragher has taunted Gary Neville on Twitter after Manchester United were dumped out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.
United succumbed to two second half City goals at Old Trafford in the semi-final clash, meaning they will not be going to Wembley in April.
Neville was on commentary for Sky Sports, but that didn’t stop him coming in for a good old fashioned rinsing from pal and Liverpool legend Carragher.
Neville has become known for tweeting images with a bottle or glass of champagne or wine when United win.
Seeing a brilliant opportunity to get one over on his old nemesis, Carragher tweeted one of those photos with the caption ‘Joint semi finalists!’.
The joke is in reference to talk that United are joint top with Liverpool, though they technically sit second due to goal difference.
Neville defended United after the semi-final loss, insisting they were simply outplayed by United, who were deserved winners.
“Manchester United haven’t played badly tonight. They are up against a very good team who have got the big moments in the match right.
“Overall, City do deserve it.”
Meanwhile, fellow United legend and pundit Roy Keane shared a similar sentiment, admitting that while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be disappointed defensively, it’s hard to complain about the defeat.
“I thought City were outstanding. It was a proper team performance,” said the Irishman.

“For a team which has had so much success, you saw at the final whistle how much it meant to them. They did a good job on United.
“I wouldn’t be too hard on United. They just came up against a better team.
“Ole will be disappointed by the goals conceded. But overall, he can have no complaints. You have to hold your hands up and say ‘City deserved it’.”
