Gary Neville Says Picking Liverpool Or Manchester City To Win Title Is Like 'Choosing Between Two Blokes To Nick Your Wife' (VIDEO)

"Gary Neville is a red, he hates Scousers," Manchester United fans still chant. However, for them - and Neville - a LiverpoolPremier League title win is frighteningly possible, and the Sky Sports pundit has likened choosing between them and Manchester City for the championship to "having a choice of two blokes to nick your wife".

Liverpool are top of the table following their 4-0 obliteration of Tottenham on Sunday, although City have a game in hand on the Merseysiders.

Neville believes the title will be won by either Liverpool or City

The two teams meet at Anfield for a potentially decisive clash on 13 April and Neville believes the momentum is with the Reds

"At this moment in time Chelsea have dipped and City should win it (the title). But Liverpool have got an incredible spirit and momentum," he said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football show.

Ex-Liverpool man Jamie Carragher saw the funny side of Neville's remark

"City have expectation whereas Liverpool were fifth or sixth favourites, so they can play with less pressure. That could switch in a few weeks if Liverpool beat City.

"It's like having a choice of two blokes to nick your wife."
