United great Neville was not amused as Liverpool’s Twitter feed encouraged a Man Utd fan site to delete a jovial tweet thanking the Reds for beating what they described as ‘one of their title rivals’ in Chelsea on Friday night.

Liverpool’s in-house social media team clearly believed they could have a joke at United expense as they encouraged @UnitedStandMUFC to delete their message following a woeful loss for their team at Vicarage Road.

Liverpool’s Twitter account responded with this simple message soon after United’s miserable display at Watford:

The weekend’s results left Liverpool one point ahead of their old foes United, but Neville suggested the brash tweet from the Anfield club’s official Twitter feed was a little premature with a clash between the two clubs less than a month away.

When a fan suggested Neville would be lapping up the banter if it was the United Twitter feed having fun at Liverpool’s expense, the Sky Sports pundit responded with this snipe:

The countdown to Liverpool v Man Utd at Anfield on October 17th is now on, with this little social media spat adding to the tension ahead of a game that will be crucial to both club’s hopes of mounting a sustained push for the Premier League title.
