United legend Gary Neville takes a cheeky dig at Liverpool’s Alexis Mac Allister as he names him as the best midfielder outside the top six.
Red signed Mac Allister from Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer transfer window. The Argentine international was signed by Liverpool as a part of the major overhaul of their midfield this season.
Neville was asked about the best midfielder outside the so called Big Six in the Premier League currently. Hence, he took a cheeky dig at Liverpool fans and names “Mac Allister from Liverpool”.
He also took a dig at Manchester United and claims that the club lacks leadership. Neville predicted that United finish below top six this season under Eric Ten Hag.
He even backs Arsenal to win the Premier League title in this current campaign. Neville also stated that Liverpool lacks quality in the middle of the park to stay in the title race.
Neville discuses the title race for the current campaign
Gary Neville discuses the title race for this current campaign. He discussed the matter and said :-
“They’ve got an outstanding goalkeeper that I always think will keep them in a lot of football matches and they’ve got strikers that can score goals and lots of them.
“They’ve got a good forward line, the midfield its attacking, but has it got the defensive ability of what we’ve seen here today when Rodri comes back in and when you see Rice, Partey and Jorginho?
“Have they got that defensive stability? If you put Declan Rice in holding midfield or you put Rodri in there, I would be saying Liverpool would definitely be on for the title.
“My question mark is whether they’ve got enough solidity in midfield, enough defensive strength and power? I don’t think Liverpool will quite get there but they’re in the race there is no doubt because of their manager.
“The manager is absolutely outstanding. He’s one of the best but I think it will be Arsenal and City again coming towards the end.”
