GARY NEVILLE smashed his hand against the commentary table after Anthony Martial ballooned Manchester United's best chance of the match over the bar in their 2-0 defeat to bitter rivals Liverpool.

After fizzing in the ball to Andreas Pereira on the edge of the box, the Frenchman received it back instantly and found himself in behind the Liverpool defence.

It's fair to say that Gary Neville wasn't too impressed after Anthony Martial spurned a glorious chance to draw Manchester United level at Anfield! 🤣

But after bringing it down and into his stride with brilliant control, Martial got his body positioning all wrong and fired high and wide of Alisson's goal.

Barely able to contain his disdain with the attempt, Neville silently vented his fury by thumping the table in front of him before proceeding with the game.

Fellow commentator Martin Tyler appeared to pay little attention to Neville's outburst, while Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher seemed to breath a sigh of relief.

Another United legend, Roy Keane, also fumed at Martial in a much more public manner, suggesting he is not good enough to play for the Red Devils.

"That sums up his career in a nutshell. You hit that target. That’s why he’s not quite good enough for United," the Irishman later said in the studio.

"That moment summed him up."

Keane and Carragher also had a passionate back and forth about the state of Man United and how the managerial situation with regards to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be approached.

Keane asked Carragher: "What about the previous managers over the last few years, are you saying they're all bad managers?"

To which Carragher hit back: "At Manchester United? Do you think they've done good jobs? You slaughtered Mourinho when he was in the job."

Keane responded: "But he needed more time."

Carra's voice then dropped an octave or two as he incredulously replied: "He needed more time? You'd have given Mourinho more time? On the back of the performance here [Anfield] last year?"

"Absolutely, that's the name of the game. We question Ole he's not up to it, look at his CV. Yet for some reasons other managers go to clubs and they're given the benefit of the doubt," Keane responded.

Carragher then pointed out: "Probably the CV gives them the benefit of the doubt."
