Gary Neville encapsulated how every Manchester United fan felt during Liverpool’s Champions League win


Liverpool’s superb performance against Roma on Tuesday sent fans inside Anfield into overdrive.

Braces from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah helped the hosts produce a stunning 5-2 victory.

However, there were was one viewer who wasn’t quite as enamoured with Liverpool’s thumping display – Gary Neville.

The Manchester United legend was watching the game, apparently through gritted teeth, and shared his thoughts on Twitter

Here’s how the Sky Sports pundit perfectly encapsulated how every Red Devils fan felt on Tuesday evening.

Liverpool produced a devastating display against Roma

Gary Neville was not happy

Denial

The hardest part of accepting something is admitting it to yourself. In this case, Neville was struggling to admit that Liverpool were going to win against Roma – and comfortably.

Acceptance and worry

After Liverpool surged into a ridiculous lead, there was no escaping the truth – the Reds were going to win, and probably play in a Champions League final.

Thinking about the consequences of his rival team reaching a European final, Neville began to fret.

Hope

A Roma away goal hands them a small slither of hope and that’s enough to get Neville tweeting again.

Prediction

Could Roma really snatch the tie away from Liverpool in the second leg and inflict copious amounts of pain on Liverpool fans?

The former United right-back seems to think so.

Hope – part two

A second Roma away goal adds yet more hope and sets up an interesting second leg.

Game on.
