Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher hilariously analysed their defending in Vincent Kompany's testimonial at the Etihad last Wednesday.

Manchester City Legends took on the Premier League All-Star XI and the match ended in a 2-2 draw, with Kompany missing out due to a hamstring injury.

But the two Sky Sports pundits broke down their performances on Monday Night Football and pulled no punches in their criticism.

Manchester United legend Neville admitted that his marking was "poor" and Liverpool legend Carragher mocked his fellow pundit over his bad defensive decisions.

Neville was at fault for the opener when he failed to track back and Martin Petrov scored in the second minute.

And the former England international's night ended in misery when he pulled his hamstring and was substituted off.

Carragher told Sky Sports after the testimonial: "You've got to go with your runners, haven't you?

"He gave a goal away in the first minute, pulls his hamstring and then after he goes off -- we're fine!

"We were in total control when he went off!"

Neville was also critical of Carragher in a separate interview as he argued that his teammate "should have deepened" during Petrov's opener.

He continued: "Why a centre-half is in front of his right-back, I'll never know."

Pep Guardiola was the manager for City Legends, while Belgium boss Roberto Martinez was in the dugout for All-Stars XI.

And the match saw the return of several footballing legends, including Edwin van der Sar, Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie.

United legend Paul Scholes also stole the spotlight during the clash with a sensational 'no-look' pass.

The testimonial helped raise money for Kompany's charity, Tackle4MCR.
