Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane was at his brutal best in the Sky Sports Studio on Sunday.
The Super Sunday pundits were discussing the current state of Manchester United and just how far they have fallen behind rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.
The Red Devils were beaten 2-0 by West Ham before Liverpool went on to beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, putting the Merseyside club 10 points above their north west rivals after just six games.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher asked his colleagues: “But how far away do you think they are away from Man United and Man City?”
The former England defender then claimed he sees similarities in Manchester United to his former Liverpool side after the departure of Rafael Benitez in which the club endured an absence from the Champions League.
“Sometimes you just need two or three players, now, can you find them?
“Luis Suarez came to Liverpool and for four or five years we were finishing sixth and seventh like United are.
“We almost won the title once Suarez came in, sometimes just that one player can make a difference.”
Keane wasn’t having any of it though and was keen to remind Carragher that the Reds have never won the Premier League.
“You said almost win a title? You didn’t win a title,” the United icon responded in typically feisty style.
“We’re talking about Manchester United here.”
Carragher then hit back to defend his point.
“Closing the gap,” he said.
“You need two or three players when you’re sixth or seventh.”
Keane wasn’t backing down though, again urging Carragher not to compare Liverpool with Manchester United.
He continued: “That’s right, but Liverpool are still trying to bridge that gap because they haven’t won a league title.”
