One of Neville’s predictions was that Pogba was the ‘player to watch’ this season, leading Carragher to ridicule his colleague.

Upon discovering Neville’s choice, Carragher burst into laughter, saying: “He says this every year!”

In response, Neville said: “I didn’t even fill that in by the way!

“Do you want to know something? I’ve said it for the last three years, because I still want him to be the player that he can be at the club and drive them towards a title,” Neville continued through Carragher’s laughter.

“And that sounds laughable at this moment in time.”

“It is!” Carragher interjected, before Neville reiterated: “That’s what I’d like to see him do, but I didn’t actually pick him on that screen!

“Do you know something, someone’s messed around with that.”
