The perfect combination of Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Jamie Carragher vs. Gary Neville, and Liverpool vs. Manchester United will always deliver a headline or two.
However, the former fullback’s strong claim seems brazen and overly confident – particularly given the poor form the Red Devils are set to enter the game with.
Not only was the 46-year-old’s claim bold but delivered facing the camera with his right hand pointing towards the viewers as he declared: “You know that Manchester United are going to beat Liverpool on Sunday and that is a fact!”
Carragher remained surprisingly passive with the ex-United defender, potentially hoping as much as all of us that those words will be able to be laughed at come Sunday evening.
