Gary Neville says it will be “one of the best years” he’s had as a Sky Sports pundit if Liverpool “blow” their lead at the top of the Premier League.

The Reds face Everton in the Merseyside derby tonight looking to extend their lead at the top of the table, while Leicester City host Watford hoping Jurgen Klopp’s men slip up.

And Neville, who played his entire career at Manchester United, would like nothing more than for Liverpool to throw it all away.

Neville told talkSPORT: “If they blow it now, it’s going to be one of the best years I’ve had on Sky!

“Honestly, it would be the most incredible experience to watch this unfold and for them have a 12-point lead and then it dissipate before my eyes.

“I actually hope they have a 12-point lead in March and then really late just fall to pieces!

“But I have to say, they’ve shown consistency now for two years, they’ve been playing title-winning football for two years and they’ve amassed points that in any other season would win a title.

“And Man City are well below where they should be.

Liverpool will have to work hard not to win it now with where they are at. They must think it’s their year.”
