Gary Neville aims sly dig at Liverpool after latest defeat by Everton

Gary Neville aims sly dig at Liverpool after latest defeat by Everton

Gary Neville took to social media to post a mocking video after Liverpool were beaten by Everton in Saturday’s Merseyside derby.

The Reds were condemned to their fourth successive defeat in the Premier League thanks to a fine third-minute strike by Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson’s penalty in the closing stages.

With their hopes of defending the league title long gone, Liverpool sit sixth in the table and their chances of finishing in the Champions League seem to be growing slimmer by the week.

But former Manchester United defender Neville has little sympathy for his former rivals and made sure to revel in their latest loss.

In a video shared on Twitter, Neville posed with a glass of wine and said: “It has been very difficult in mockdown – I mean meltdown, I mean lockdown – to see the demise of the great champions.”

Neville also aimed more barbs at Liverpool through the match and replied to Jamie Carragher’s tweet to say “Go and get your kit on” as Jordan Henderson became the Reds’ latest centre-back casualty.

Is Gary Neville the best pundit in the country? Have your say in the comments.

After Everton were awarded a penalty for a foul on Dominic Calvert-Lewin by Trent Alexander-Arnold, referee Chris Kavanagh went to the pitchside VAR monitor to check his original decision.

Neville posted a video of himself laughing and wrote: “They’ve only sent him over to make em think it was being overturned,” and added the fishing and crying laughing emojis for good measure.

During the video, his regular co-pundit Carragher can be heard saying: “I think that would be very harsh for a penalty”.

But Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp chose not to protest the decision after the match, saying: “The penalty was late and wasn’t really decisive so we don’t have to talk about that too much.”
