Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has admitted it’s painful watching the success of Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s side won convincingly against Arsenal on Saturday and are already starting to pull away from United in the league.
The difference in quality between United and their oldest rivals has been hard to watch for a couple of seasons now, and the gap doesn’t look like it’s about to reduce either.
Liverpool are set to go head to head with Man City in the title race this season, while United’s main objective under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is to find a way back into the top four.
Seeing Liverpool comfortably put three past Arsenal after United’s humbling defeat to Crystal Palace hours earlier reminding us fans just how far the club has fallen behind since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson six years ago.
And Neville had high praise for each of Liverpool’s attacking trio, crediting the business they have done in acquiring the front three.
“Liverpool have signed three £30million strikers and turned them into £150m strikers, each and every one of them,” he told Sky Sports
“They weren’t that good, now they’re outstanding.
“This is a really good team, and painful for me to watch personally.”
United face Liverpool at Old Trafford on October 19th, in what will be a tough game for Solskjaer’s side to avoid defeat in.
