Gary Neville mocked with 'crying filter' on social media after Arsenal defeat Man Utd

Gary Neville mocked with 'crying filter' on social media after Arsenal defeat Man Utd

Neville was mocked after the game.

Arsenal defeated Manchester United 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday - and Gary Neville was mocked on social media after the game.

Neville was on commentary duty for Sky Sports for the game, taking his place alongside Peter Drury and referee correspondent Mike Dean.

The United legend watched on as his side took a first half lead, with Marcus Rashford curling the ball with enough power to take it beyond Aaron Ramsdale's outstretched glove.

But Arsenal equalised in under a minute, captain Martin Odegaard sweeping the ball home from Gabriel Martinelli's pass.

More drama was to come, however, with Alejandro Garnacho thinking he had scored the winner for United on 88 minutes after slotting the ball past Ramsdale.

But VAR adjudged the Argentinian to be offside, much to the disappointment of the previously jubilant United support.

And it was Arsenal who took all three points, with new signing Declan Rice powering home a deflected effort in the 96th minute.

More was to come late on as United threw players forward. Fabio Vieira broke free with the ball, before playing in Gabriel Jesus who made no mistake with his one-on-one effort.

It was devastation for United - and one social media account decided to mock Neville after the game.

During Arsenal's celebrations, one supporter decided to film footage of Neville as he commentated over the goal.

This was later dubbed over by a 'crying filter' - applied to a still image or moving video - which shows the United legend looking 'emotional' after the Arsenal goal.

The video is, of course, edited, shown by the subsequent real shot of the clip which shows Neville with a straight face while commentating.

Neville was criticised by some Arsenal supporters in January when he predicted that the Gunners would not win the league despite their eight-point advantage over Manchester City at the time. He was proven correct, however, as Arteta's side finished second.

Speaking after the game against United, the Sky Sports pundit discussed a controversial moment in the game which saw an Arsenal penalty overturned by VAR: "I was shocked it was overturned. There's a high bar - we saw it with [Virgil] Van Dijk last week.

"There is a contact in the end. You can't tell whether it's Havertz kicking his leg out towards [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka or the other way. That's why I thought there was enough in it to follow the pattern they've followed this season, which is to stick with the decision.

"If I was a full-back I'd be saying, 'He's dived, he's kicked my leg'. But on the other hand, because of the high bar we've set, that's why I was surprised."
