Gary Neville just wrote perfect speech on Jurgen Klopp’s side after revealing Liverpool ‘fact’ – .

“You know Manchester United will beat Liverpool on Sunday and that’s a fact! ”
HONK. Gary Neville has done it again.

Old habits die hard.

It seems it doesn’t matter that Jurgen Klopp’s side are undefeated as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are underachieving, in sixth place after suffering losses to Aston Villa and Leicester City, drawing Southampton and Everton , losing to Young Boys in the Champions League and leaving the League Cup at the hands of West Ham United.

That’s not enough for the former United full-back to admit his former club just aren’t as strong as Liverpool.

Speaking on the last edition of Monday Night Football, Neville admitted that his former teammate Solskjaer was under pressure at Old Trafford after an below-par start to the season.

“There has been a lot of excitement around Manchester United over the past 24 hours and rightly so because the performances, not just on Saturday, but this season have been far from good enough with the players available in this squad “, did he declare.

“This is currently causing huge problems for the manager. I thought that last season there was something being built. I think if you asked him privately ‘Do you want last season’s team to come back? I think he would probably go back.

“They have six grenades with the pins removed in the locker room. It can work, I saw Del Bosque lead a Real Madrid team in the Champions League, Zidane did it with great players, I think PSG is like that right now. You see Pochettino there and you think it’s not really a Pochettino team.

“Ole has a bit of that now. It has Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire. Massive characters in the locker room, Maguire will look at Varane in the locker room and think I’m more the better dog?

“You have the dynamic of Cavani sitting on the bench who was begged to stay but now has Ronaldo, Rashford and Greenwood in front of him. Sancho came in for £ 75million and now he seems to come in and out.

“All these problems are developing, Solskjaer has to somehow bring this group together. He needs to find a basic defensive form that the players buy into and allow others to win the games for him. This is the only way for him to restart the season.

“Ronaldo’s aura, Fernandes walks around with outstretched arms all the time, Pogba doesn’t know if he’s staying or going, emerging captain Maguire thinks about how he’s controlling this batch. Ole has to figure it out this week.

Still, that didn’t stop him from backing the Red Devils to defeat the Reds in a verbal bout with Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.

“Sunday this lot is a weird group, they could go out and do Liverpool. They have to have that right spirit and dynamic, ”he said.

“You know Manchester United will beat Liverpool on Sunday and that’s a fact! He added, after Carragher joked, Ronaldo would score the winner after excluding him from his combined eleven.

“And he knows it by the way! “

To some extent, Neville is right. Manchester United are unpredictable and could record their best performance of the season so far against Liverpool on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Klopp’s record at Old Trafford is one of its weakest with last May’s 4-2 win, his first away for United in the seventh time in demand.

But you would think Neville would have learned how to make such a bold, anti-Liverpool prediction by now.

After all, it has been burned many times before.

Or at least avoided declaring such ‘facts’ following Rafa Benitez’s infamous and misjudged rant in the middle of the 2008/09 Premier League title race between the two sides.

And this isn’t the first time Neville has insisted that Carragher “know” what he’s saying is true, only to end up with an egg in his face.

“What I’m saying is Liverpool, City, Tottenham, all of these clubs have had bad recruiting policies at times over the last 25 or 30 years,” he told Sky Bet’s The Big Debate in August 2019 when he sadly declared United would win the league again before Liverpool.

“So United are going through one right now. Eventually, they’ll come across the right recruiting system, the right recruiting people, they’ll have a great manager – I hope it’s Ole – and they’ll start winning again. It will happen.

“I can guarantee you as clearly as the day Manchester United will win again. They will probably win the league before Liverpool, in my opinion.

“And it’s not disrespectful, they’ll probably win the league before Liverpool. I think they will win a league before Liverpool.

“They’re more mature, they’re closer than you might think and it’s not as bad as you might think. It’s always like that. “

Liverpool would end the season as champions, 33 points ahead of third-placed United, while adding the European Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup to their collection.

In contrast, Solskjaer’s side lost a Europa League final and were beaten twice as semi-finalists in the same competition, the FA Cup and the League Cup twice since Neville’s daring prediction. But they were just 12 points behind the champions last season, so that’s at least progress.

However, Neville wasn’t finished there when he made his big statement in August 2019.

“And Liverpool, Salah will be leaving in the next 12 months, I can see that already,” he added.

” The [Jamie Carragher] knows, he won’t say it. I can see it, you can feel it, you can feel it.

Two years later, Mohamed Salah remains a Liverpool player and is arguably the best player on the planet in his current form.

Maybe Neville’s guts aren’t as intuitive as he would lead them to believe.

As recently as August of this year he was there again, insisting that all was not well at Anfield and suggesting United would end up ahead of Liverpool this season.

“I was at Saturday’s game, Liverpool v Chelsea, and I said after the game – sometimes you just can’t put your finger on it [but] something is wrong, ”he said earlier this season.

” Not bad. There is no massive mind problem, or the manager is falling out with the players. Nothing like.

“But something is missing. I remember going there three years ago and thinking “we [United] are in difficulty ”. Two years ago, thinking: “we are in serious trouble”.

” The crowd. The players. The speed of football. The first three. Alisson and Van Dijk have come. Oh my God. They are going to win the championship.

“You can just smell it and see when something is going right. It’s just not there [now], this team went a step further.

“They’re not the team they were two years ago. They are also a good team – they will win a lot of games. They will be close.

“But I don’t think they’re there. There is something quite wrong. “

He added: “There are no big problems at Liverpool. I’m not saying it’s broken. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

“But I don’t think they have the momentum with them right now.

“They are just leveling off. I’m not sure Liverpool can get there first. I don’t think they’ll make it [United] This year. “

Admittedly, predicting United to beat Liverpool on Sunday is by no means as obvious as belittling the Reds’ titles in favor of his former club by saying Salah is set to exit.

But the failed Valencia manager really doesn’t have the best record when it comes to reflecting on the fortunes of his former rivals.

As a result, Liverpool fans will only have to hope Neville is wrong yet again, with his latest tirade nothing more than delivering Klopp’s pre-match speech for him as the Reds prepare for their last trip to Old Trafford.

After all, Liverpool are at their best when written off and underrated, the bruised underdog left with a point to prove.

Neville never learns, does he? And it is a fact.
