Video: Gary Neville winds up Liverpool fans after United go joint top

It’s early days but Gary Neville can’t contain his excitement at seeing Manchester United joint top in the Premier League.

Gary Neville loves winding up the Scousers, even if he risks having egg on his face because it would be bold to suggest Manchester United will end up Premier League champions this season.

We’ve turned our season around after the Champions League exit – and the teams around us have us to climb up the table into a more respectable position.

So, to celebrate going joint top of the league after beating Aston Villa 2-1 at Old Trafford, Neville decided to pop open a bottle of champaign.

Liverpool play again on Monday night — at home to Southampton — but then United will have a game in-hand against Burnley on January 12.

The Scousers are still favourites to defend the title and we’re not going to get ahead of ourselves this early, but it is amusing to see Neville wind up their supporters on Twitter, as seen below:
