Gary Neville has hit out at Liverpool's official Twitter account after they responded to a tweet from a Manchester United fan account. 

The United Stand Twitter account initially trolled Liverpool following their impressive victory at Stamford Bridge on Friday night. 

Despite Liverpool's win in west London, the United fan account suggested that the Merseyside outfit were only playing for a top-six position.

The tweet read: "Big thanks to Liverpool for beating one of our title rivals. Another three points towards your battle for 6th."

Well, that tweet came back to haunt the United account after the Red Devils succumbed to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Watford. Indeed, Liverpool's official Twitter account opted to respond to it by stating 'delete'.

But it appears that Neville, who played for the Red Devils between 1992 and 2011, didn't see the funny side. 

In fact, he insisted that he would have been embarrassed if Manchester United had sent the tweet. 

Neville didn't stop there, however; the Sky Sports pundit also suggested that the tweet should act as a source of motivation for the United players.

Neville vs Carragher

Unsurprisingly, Neville comically asked Jamie Carragher if he was the man behind Liverpool's tweet. 

Reds legend Carragher, who works alongside Neville for Sky Sports, responded in style by claiming that he would have tweeted 'Deeney'. 

It was Troy Deeney, of course, who scored Watford's third and final goal as the Hornets secured all three points against Mourinho's side. 

United and Liverpool are set to go head-to-head at Anfield on October 17.
