Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has aimed a humorous dig at work colleague Jamie Carragher.

Earlier today on social networking site Twitter, Carragher asked Liverpool fans whether they would rather win against Basel tonight or Manchester United on Sunday, aiming a dig at Liverpool's big rivals.

"Question for Lfc fans- win tonight or Sunday? Tonight for me, rather qualify for the CL than beat the 7th best team in the Prem last season!" Carragher posted, mocking United who struggled under David Moyes last season.

But Neville, who's former team are now up to third in the Premier League after their win against Southampton on Monday night, hit back at his Sky Sports colleague.

"What if you lose both? Just a thought," Neville wrote, clearly reminding Carragher that it's now Liverpool who are the team out of form this season.

Neville was last night scolded by United boss Louis van Gaal for comments he made on Monday Night Football.

“United got away with murder tonight,” Neville said in his role as Sky TV pundit. “As an ex-legend, or legend, he should pay attention to his words,” snapped Van Gaal in a post-match press conference.

Liverpool, who have won just twice in eight matches since the start of November, must beat Basel tonight at Anfield to qualify for the last-16 of the Champions League.

The Reds, ninth in the Premier League, travel to Old Trafford on Sunday to face a Manchester United team that have won five matches in a row.
