Manchester United began cooking some jokes about Jamie Carragher when Bournemouth took the lead against Liverpool yesterday.
Philip Billing’s goal came in the first half, so a lot of Manchester United fans had to wait patiently for the game to come to a conclusion. In the end, Mohamed Salah missed a second half penalty and Liverpool were unable to respond to Bournemouth’s opening goal.
That meant Liverpool succumbed to defeat in disappointing fashion against a relegation contender, who were bottom of the Premier League before kick-off.
After Liverpool’s 7-0 win over United last Sunday, Carragher revelled in Gary Neville’s misery as he made a number of jokes on air and on social media.
And while working for CBS Sports for their Champions League coverage midweek, the former Liverpool defender was spotted drinking a can of 7UP, making another reference to United’s heavy defeat at Anfield.

Weird for a boyhood Everton fan.
But after failing to score against Bournemouth, United fans hit back at the 45-year-old – with cans of Coke Zero as well as cherry flavoured 7UP.
How many goals today? @Carra23 🤔😂🖕 pic.twitter.com/cXtDe21Lih

I don’t know why people are taking the piss out of Liverpool for losing to Bournemouth. It just makes the 7-0 humiliation last weekend even more embarrassing. We crumbled to a mediocre Liverpool who got beat by the bottom team in the premier league.
Seriously how bad can it be. We were worse than the bottom team, much worse.
