Have you ever seen Steven Gerrard win the league? It's a question that Manchester United fans will probably never get tired of asking Liverpool supporters. 

It's fairly understandable, of course; Liverpool and Manchester United are the most successful teams in English football and are also the greatest of rivals. 

Gerrard, who departed Anfield at the end of last season, is recognised as one of the Liverpool's greatest ever players, but he failed to inspire his beloved club to a Premier League title throughout his fine stint on Merseyside. He did, however, play his part in securing a Champions League trophy for the Reds back in 2005.

Twitter digs 

It all started when Carragher tweeted about United striker Marcus Rashford. The ex-England international took to social media to claim that he didn't say United were wrong to play the 18-year-old in the Manchester derby. 

Rashford, of course, netted the winner at the Etihad, but Carragher insists he just stated that the youngster should be dipped in and out of the team.

Anyway, in response to Carragher's tweet, a Manchester United fan replied, asking him whether he had ever seen Gerrard win the league...

Instead of ignoring the troll, the Liverpool hero asked the United fan whether he had ever seen Eric Cantona win the Champions League.

The United fan attempted to have the last laugh by stating that he had seen Cantona score the winner in the FA Cup final against the Reds. They could have probably gone on all evening, but, thankfully, it stopped there. 

Race for the top four 

The harmless teasing was all rather amusing, but it's safe to say that Liverpool fans wouldn't have been in great spirits after Sunday's result. 

On a day where Manchester United overcame Manchester City at the Etihad, Liverpool surrendered a two-goal lead to lose by three goals to two against Southampton.

Jurgen Klopp's side certainly ran out of steam against Saints and now face an almighty task of securing a place in the top four of the Premier League. 

Currently lying in ninth position in the table, the Merseyside outfit sit seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City. Rivals United, on the other hand, are now just one point behind the Citizens. 

Do you think Liverpool will finish above Manchester United this season? Have your say below!
