Gary Neville destroys Jamie Carragher on Twitter

Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville are now team-mates in Rupert Murdoch's super Sky All-Stars, intent of monopolising the market of televised sport. If only that pesky Jake Humphrey could somehow disappear, then Gary, Jamie and Ed Chamberlain would be kings of Saturday lunch times as well as Monday nights. What a vision - a terrifying one, but a vision nonetheless.

Monday Night Football has taken a serious turn for the better since Carragher and Neville retired from their glittered playing careers. Their fresh look on the game, with the help of the super technical Sky Pad, has given Premier League fans a fresh outlook on football analysis. It was much needed; there is only so long one can listen to Robbie Savage trying to break down a game he could barely play himself.

But beyond the analysis comes the camaraderie. While Neville and Carragher clearly share a close friendship now, they're allegiances to Manchester United and Liverpool respectively, prevent them from becoming BFFs.

However, the tension does lead to some hilarious banter, which fans enjoy just as much as Neville's detailed dissection of how Louis van Gaal gets away with murder. Fans were treated to just such a moment on Twitter.

Twitter wars

Carragher, who writes to 390,000 followers on the social media snippet website, asked his fans to choose between a win against FC Basel, and thus qualification to the Champions League knockout round, or beating Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

He wrote: "Question for Lfc fans- win tonight or Sunday? Tonight for me, rather qualify for the CL than beat the 7th best team in the Prem last season!"

Neville, who has significantly more fans at 2.58 million, replied: "What if you lose both? Just a thought."

Accurate prediction

Unfortunately for Carragher, he could be facing up to the prospect of Neville being right. While Liverpool did not lose to FC Basel, they may as well have as the 1-1 draw was sufficient to see the Swiss side through.

And with Liverpool facing the prospect of a Manchester United side with five consecutive wins in the Premier League, another disastrous result looks more likely than a heroic victory for now.
