Carragher and Neville disagreed on three key positionsCredit: EPA
Neville shaped up with three central defenders
Neville shaped up with a 3-4-3, and went with three centre-back’s to protect Alisson.
Neville said on the midfield two: “Rodri has been absolutely incredible this year at City. He has been absolutely amazing.
“Underrated, under appreciated, someone who does the job week-in-week-out.
“The improvement in him is massive. Rice alongside him… those two with the three at the back.”
Liverpool‘s Andy Robertson was ‘unlucky’ to miss out on making Neville’s team of the Season so far.
But Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joao Cancelo, who has been playing out of position, have ‘lit up’ the Prem this season.
But Carragher was astounded Neville left out Bernardo Silva.
He pressed: “How the hell have you not put Bernardo Silva in your team?”
Neville responded: “I just haven’t put him in.”
Carragher, instead, went for a 4-3-3 and got rid of Alisson, Rodri and Dias.
Aaron Ramsdale is the man in between the sticks having kept nine clean sheets in 16 games.
Carragher opted for a 4-3-3 with Silva, Rice, Gallagher in midfield
The Sky Sports pair agree on the front three.
Neville snapped back: “At the end of the day, how have you not put Rodri in? Rodri has been unbelievable.”
He continued: “I think Rodri and Declan Rice have been two best central midfielders… I’ve played a different system, I wanted to get three centre-back’s in.”
