Things Got Very Heated Between Souness & Neville After Liverpool's Win Over Man United

Manchester United fans will be licking their wounds in the aftermath of today's loss to Liverpool.

They entered the game confident of getting a result at Anfield, with their form having been much more consistent that that of the hosts over the last couple of months.

However, despite playing to a reasonable level in the first half, they completely fell apart after the interval.

Liverpool would score six goals in the second half to run out as 7-0 winners. While Klopp's team played well, the way in which United completely threw the towel in will concern their fans.

Graeme Souness & Gary Neville get into it on Sky Sports

In contrast, Liverpool fans will be feeling rather smug about their side at the moment.


Gary Neville said on Sky Sports after the game that while Liverpool did well in the second half, this result was more about Manchester United falling apart. He also labelled it as a freak performance.

As Graeme Souness called him out for some of his comments, Neville quickly got rather chippy towards him and Carragher in the studio.



Souness: Gary put it on me at the start of the show if I would repeat on air that I thought Liverpool would win well today. Gary said off air that he thought Liverpool played badly today.

Neville: I didn't say that.

Souness: Then what did you say?

Neville: I said that in the first half I thought Manchester United were the better team. In the second half, it was about Manchester United's capitulation.

Souness: So that had nothing to do with Liverpool playing well?

Neville: I don't think Jurgen Klopp tonight when he analyses this game will say 'we're back', he won't fall into that trap. He won't get carried away off the back of that.

Souness: We're not talking about them getting carried away, we're talking about them playing well.

Neville: Hold on, hear me out. Look at you, gloating like little children.

Souness: You can't come out with a daft remark that Liverpool didn't play well today...

Neville: They played alright in the second half, they won the game. Congratulations, well done. My point is this is a Manchester United story. When you get beat 7-0, it's about how bad the other team are...

I still think Liverpool in that first half were really vulnerable. It was really shaky.

Souness: So you think Man United were the better team in the first half?

Neville: I do.

Souness: Not a chance.

Things certainly got a bit heated.

Neville would continue to say this was a freak result, but Souness would point out that they have also shipped heavy defeats to the likes of Manchester City, Brighton, and Brentford this season.

It was clear that neither man was backing down on this one.
