Jamie Carragher couldn't resist taking a dig at a Manchester United fan during the build up to their clash with Liverpool on Saturday.

Sky Sports introduced a live 'countdown' programme which saw Carragher sat alongside members of The Redmen TV - a Liverpool fan Youtube channel - whilst his Monday Night Football co-pundit Gary Neville sat alongside members of FullTimeDevils - a Manchester United fan Youtube channel - in a healthy footballing debate hosted by Geoff Shreeves.

After all the hype of the 'Red Monday' fixture between the two last season, Jose Mourinho went to Anfield with his United side and played for a draw in what turned out to be a very dull 0-0 draw with few chances and very little talking points.

However, with this being the first Premier League game since the international break and with one of the biggest rivalries in football meeting for the first time this season, Sky Sports have not disappointed with their build up to the crucial fixture.

The programme started with both sets of fans taking small digs at each other before the Monday Night Football duo couldn't resist joining in. One United fan decided to take a swing at the former Liverpool defender, before Carragher responded in brilliant style.

When the fan claimed: "You scored a brace one year, didn’t you?" - referring to when Carragher scored two own-goals in one game against United - he replied with: “I did, yeah. Fat Russel Crowe’s son, there.”


He wasn't finished there either. The United fan tried to recover himself referring to the fact the former Liverpool man had never won a Premier League title, before Carragher decided to turn the attention from the match in hand to the outfit the fan was wearing, saying: "“Give Liam Gallagher his cagoule back.”


Liverpool and United face off in the early kick-off on Saturday as the home side look to close the seven point gap between United and themselves, where as the visitors will be looking to keep the pressure up on their Manchester rivals who they are currently level on points with.
