Some Liverpool supporters have been mocking Gary Neville after the Reds finished third in the Premier League following his reaction of surprise at their achievement.
The Reds knew that a win would all but guarantee a top-four finish on Sunday, as Crystal Palace made the trip to Anfield with 10,000 fans present at the stadium. Jurgen Klopp’s men got the job done in professional fashion thanks to two goals from Sadio Mane in either half, and they even ended up in third place when all was said and done.
Considering that Liverpool looked dead and buried in March, having lost six league games in a row at home, it was a great effort by Klopp and his players to bounce back and finish best of the rest behind the two Manchester clubs.
Neville’s dislike for the Reds is well-known, given his previous with Manchester United down the years, as characterised by one particularly dramatic celebration at Old Trafford in a game between the two teams.
On Sunday, the Sky Sports pundit revealed his shock at finding out live on air that Liverpool had actually finished third ahead of Chelsea and Leicester City, much to the hilarity of those around him.
Liverpool fans mock Neville
These Reds fans took to Twitter to mock the former United defender, with whom they have had a few run-ins over the years.
“This is quite a treat“
“You know he was actually dying inside!”
“Tears in his eyes“
” ‘Worst title defence in Premier League history’ and they’ve finished one place below Man United in their ‘best season post-Fergie’ with Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips in defence as well as Trent Alexander-Arnold who ‘can’t defend’. “
“That’s why he ruined Valencia“
In other news, some Liverpool fans are desperate for the Reds to sign a prolific midfielder this summer. Find out who it is here.
