Gary Neville pops the champagne after Liverpool’s shock loss to Watford

Manchester United cult hero Gary Neville was in the mood to celebrate after Liverpool's hopes of finishing the Premier League season unbeaten came to an end with a 3-0 loss to Watford .

Two goals from Ismaila Sarr and another from Troy Deeney gave the Hornets a stunning win over Jurgen Klopp's side, and handed the Reds their first defeat in 44 games in the league.

Neville has never hidden his dislike of Liverpool , and just minutes after the final whistle at Vicarage Road he shared a celebratory video on Twitter .

The Sky Sports pundit does not speak in the 13 second clip, but instead slowly opens a bottle of champagne, and smiles in delight when the cork pops.

Actions clearly spoke louder than words on this occasion, and Neville has obviously been waiting for a long time to revel in a Liverpool defeat.

The result means the Reds can no longer match Arsenal's unbeaten season in the 2003-2004 campaign, in which Arsene Wenger's team recorded 26 wins, 12 draws and 0 defeats on their way to winning the title.

The Gunners also joined in the fun on Twitter by simply posting the words "Phew…", before directing a message to Liverpool which read: "Congratulations on a formidable unbeaten run, @LFC."

Speaking after the loss Klopp was magnanimous in defeat, and said: "They did exactly what they wanted to do, we did not. That's how football works.
