Gary Neville brands Jamie Carragher and David Jones "muppets" in gaffe

Gary Neville has branded Jamie Carragher and David Jones “muppets” after they broke out in fits of laughter at his statistics which they thought were proven wrong.

The trio were on duty for Sky Sports in the early kick off from Turf Moor as Burnley secured a 2-1 win over Wolves.

The visitors were trailing 1-0 at half-time in a surprising turn of events.

And Neville claimed during the break that things were looking bleak for Wolves, who he believed had only won once from being behind in seven attempts.

Jones then tried to show Neville up, saying with a few chuckles from Carragher: “Gary was saying they don't have a great record coming from behind.

“We've checked it Gary. Only Liverpool have won more games.”

The exchange initially appeared to leave Neville extremely red faced as host Jones and co-pundit Carragher howled with laughter.

However, Neville had the last laugh as he hit back at the pair on Twitter.

He replied to the video: "They have won 1 of 7 from going behind!! These two muppets using last seasons stats…”

Neville has also recently had his say on Manchester United’s title credentials after a sharp rise up the table.

“You just watch them and think there isn’t a team emerging there who can challenge for the title,” he said on his Sky Sports podcast.

“My gut feeling is to still say I don’t think Manchester United are going to win the league.

“But I am surprised, it’s bizarre where they are considering a couple of weeks ago you were thinking this could be difficult, a challenging period coming into Christmas, but it’s looking a little bit rosier.

“Their form’s really good. They’re scoring goals, coming back in matches, today they’ve played well, it’s a big game against Leicester on Boxing Day, but there’s something not right.

“But then when you look at where they are in the league, and they can go two points behind Liverpool, if you’d said at the start of the season they’d be in a position to do that, coming into Christmas, you’d have snapped everyone’s hands off.”
