A number of Liverpool supporters have been mocking Gary Neville after he claimed Manchester United have a superior squad to the Reds.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have won their first two Premier League games this season, winning 3-0 at Norwich City and beating Burnley 2-0 at Anfield.
After a tough campaign last time around, Liverpool look back to their best and should challenge the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea for the title in 2021/22 – Saturday’s clash with the latter could tell us more.
United could also be potential contenders, but Sunday’s 1-1 draw away to Southampton suggests they perhaps still have some catch-up to do.
Despite this, Neville believes his former club will finish above Liverpool in the table this season because their squad is better, admitting as much on Sky Sports‘ Monday Night Football [via Anfield Watch on Twitter].
Liverpool fans mock Neville
These Reds fans took to Twitter to laugh at Neville’s remarks, claiming Klopp’s men remain the stronger outfit.
“Hahah lose Maguire to an injury and you’re in a top 4 race“
“Maguire got hurt last season and Man UTD went into relegation form“
“The state of this”
“Man Utd have no real centre mids, no backup full-backs and if Fernandes is out they are screwed – Neville is just a touch biased”
“Except if Bruno goes they are about the same level as Leicester“
“Liverpool’s bench was better than Utd’s bench the weekend even with Fabinho out“
In other news, some Liverpool fans are keen for the Reds to sign a central midfielder. Find out who it is here.
