Neville thinks City v Liverpool not 'greatest Premier League rivalry'

Speaking on Sky Sports, about the Manchester City vs Liverpool rivalry, Gary Neville said: "It's unbelievable, 338 vs 337 points. In terms of consistency, quality, and excellence, this has a case to be the greatest Premier League rivalry.

"But when I think about rivalries, I think there has got to be more to it than that. Is there ferocity, intensity, a story to tell. When people talk of the Sir Alex Ferguson—Arsene Wenger rivalry there were incidents and stories to tell.

"The tunnel incident at Highbury, the FA Cup semi-final with Ryan Giggs' celebration, the Marc Overmars goal at Old Trafford that wins the title. There were big moments between the two teams along with ferocity, fights, pizzas!

"There was more than just football excellence, so I don't think this Man City and Liverpool rivalry beats that yet. There were too many hugs — they like each other too much! Whether this will be a documentary in 25 years I'm not too sure."

Man City and Liverpool are battling it out for the 2021/22 Premier League table with City staying one point clear after last week's 2–2 draw at the Etihad.

The Reds and the Citizens have pushed each other to insane levels, having amassed 337 and 338 points since the start of the 2018/19 season (Chelsea are a distant third with 264).

But apparently the LFC v City rivalry is not good enough because De Bruyne does not throw pizza at Klopp and Henderson and Walker don't fight each other in the tunnel. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
