Camera caught Gary Neville's celebrations for Man Utd's goals

Gary Neville's celebrations for Manchester United's two goals, as they beat Liverpool 2-1 on Monday night, were caught on camera.

It was a big night for United as they picked up their first points of the season and leapfrogged above their rivals in the league table.

The win would have been particularly enjoyable for Erik ten Hag, who got his tactics and team selection spot on against Jurgen Klopp, even if Piers Morgan was butthurt about Cristiano Ronaldo being benched.

United went ahead in the first half, through Jadon Sancho's 16th minute goal, but it was Virgil van Dijk who got most of the attention for the goal.

The Dutchman was criticised for his defending for the goal, seemingly freezing on the goal line and putting his hands behind his back, rather than attacking the ball.

Whilst Van Dijk wouldn't have enjoyed it, Neville certainly did, with a Sky Sports camera pointed at him and fellow commentator Jamie Carragher throughout the match.

The United legend let out a seven second scream following Sancho's opener, with only the end of it caught by his microphone, and he was even more excited by Marcus Rashford doubling the lead, throwing his hands in the air and then pumping his fists.

Unsurprisingly the reaction from Carragher wasn't quite as animated, as he looked pretty stoney faced in the short glimpses of the former defender.

In fact he wasn't on camera much at all, making us wonder if he was all too aware of it being there, although we haven't seen his reaction to Mohamed Salah's goal.

Perhaps Carragher was still hurting from his earlier on screen appearance, when Cristiano Ronaldo blanked him before kick off.

The United forward wouldn't have been happy to have been benched and he walked straight past the former Liverpool defender, instead embracing ex United teammate Roy Keane.

Salah's consolation late on, heading home after David de Gea had made a save, wasn't enough to give Liverpool a third successive draw, even if Klopp felt his team should have won.

The German, who has a reputation for excellent post match excuses, claimed that his team only lost because they ran out of time, which is a hell of a statement.
