Gary Neville And Jamie Carragher's Reactions To Manchester United And Liverpool Goals Were Brilliant

Gary Neville And Jamie Carragher's Reactions To Manchester United And Liverpool Goals Were Brilliant

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher watched the teams they support Manchester United and Liverpool play out a 1-1 draw on Sunday from the commentary gantry but still managed to celebrate the goals.

Super Sunday threw up and intriguing tie as United changed to a 3-5-2 in order to stop Liverpool's marauding full backs and after taking a lead in the first half were managing pretty well.

They went ahead through a controversial goal on 36 minutes and then held on until Adam Lallana equalised in the 85th. Both Neville and Carragher celebrated the goals for 'their' team and Neville certainly looked deflated when his conceded late on.

United started better than many expected after lining up with three centre backs in the shape of Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Marcos Rojo, who was a late replacement for Axel Tuanzebe after the youngster dropped out in the warm up with an injury.

Ashley Young and Aaron Wan-Bissaka played in the wing-back positions, Fred, Andreas Pereira and Scott McTominay were in midfield and Daniel James and Marcus Rashford were up front.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side played well and took the lead with 10 minutes of the first half to go but it wasn't before a VAR check that might have gone in the opposite direction.

Divock Origi, starting in place of the injured Mo Salah, looked to have been fouled in the build up by Origi, before Rashford slotted home, but the video official didn't overturn the decision.

Liverpool had another slice of bad luck with the video official as a pre half-time equaliser was ruled out after the ball hit Sadio Mane's hand.

They did earn a point, and keep their undefeated record this season, as Lallana found the goal late on, much to the relief of the travelling fans.

Neville caused his own controversy in commentary. Joking about Liverpool's disallowed VAR goal the former Red Devil said, "That is VAR at its best. That was the reason it was brought in. It was impossible for the referee and linesman to spot.

"The reason why VAR was brought in was to help Man Utd beat Liverpool."
