Liverpool or Manchester City? Gary Neville reveals to Chris Evans through gritted teeth who he’d rather see w
The former Manchester United defender was asked the question he dreaded on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Virgin Radio on Monday morning
Liverpool and Manchester City fighting for the Premier League title is the scenario no Manchester United fan wants to see and none more so than former Red Devil Gary Neville.
However, it’s developing into a two-horse race with Jurgen Klopp’s side leading the way over the reigning champions by courtesy of a four-point lead.
This is also a potential repeat of the 2013/14 season which saw Liverpool and City battle it out for the crown.
City came out on top in that race, but before that was confirmed United legend Neville had the question put towards him on who he’d rather see win the Premier League when working as a pundit on Sky.
Neville came out with the legendary line that it was like: “having a choice of two blokes to nick your wife”.
It’s a quote that gets replayed even now, and almost half a decade on history appears to be repeating itself.
On his first day back at Virgin Radio, Chris Evans decided the time was right to ask Neville the question again.
And Neville, with a heavy heart, eventually admitted he would rather see City triumph ahead of Klopp’s men.
However, rather interestingly claimed some United fans would rather Liverpool win their first Premier League crown instead of their Manchester neighbours winning back-to-back titles.

Speaking on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show, Neville said: “I said a few years ago when they were both going for the title that it is like having a choice of two blokes you want to nick your wife!
“It’s not changed, it’s getting worse!
“Do you know something? I have had for the first time in a few weeks that some United fans want Liverpool to win the title because they don’t want to see City win back-to-back titles and start a period of domination.
“I can’t bring myself to say Liverpool, I just can’t. It’s going to have to be City.”
