Jamie Carragher slammed Gary Neville for 'talking like Manchester United are a small club' after the pundit suggested his former side were 'not ready' to attack a team like Liverpool following the pair's stalemate draw on Sunday.

The Anfield clash was given much fanfare before kick-off with United top of the Premier League, but the 0-0 draw saw both side's underwhelm.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have received praise for their upturn in fortunes this season which saw them win five of their previous seven games before the tie but failed to take advantage of a depleted Liverpool side who have struggled in recent weeks.

The pair discussed the much-anticipated Liverpool vs Man United game that ended 0-0

But despite the side failing to show authority on the game, former right-back Neville defended United's display and said they were 'not ready' to attack a team of Liverpool's quality because they are 'not a champion team yet'.

'I believe this team is not ready', Neville said on Sky Sports Monday Night Football. 

'Seven weeks ago the manager was reportedly on the brink of the sack, to 7 weeks later going to their toughest game of season at Anfield and all of a suddenly saying ‘they’re a bit weaker… let’s go for it.’

'I don’t think they are ready because the best teams, the champion teams are able to step up. This team are not a champion team.'

Carragher was highly critical of this analysis, suggesting Neville's mindset went against United's winning attitude of the past.

'I don’t agree with any of that. Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world. A player who won everything at that club. You talk of mentality of that club, and mentality of this team and that they’re not a champion team yet', responded Carragher.

The pair got into a heated debate about United's failure to take advantage of Liverpool

'You’re talking like United are a small team. This is an unprecedented season where City and Liverpool are miles off where they were. They may get back to that next season so this might be one of the best chance MU have. 

'It might be best chance they have to win at Anfield in next few years. The game was there. They never once showed that United authority. I disagree completely with what he said. '
