Neville embarrassed on Twitter again as Liverpool posts backfire in AC Milan win

Manchester United legend Gary Neville endured another tough night on Twitter after Liverpool fought back to seal a thrilling 3-2 win over AC Milan.

Neville had posted a series of tweets mocking the Reds after they fell behind in shocking scenes at the end of the first half.

But despite trailing 2-1, goals from Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson ensured Jurgen Klopp's side would kick off their Champions League campaign with a win.

The result left Neville with egg on his face for the second night running.

The ex-United stalwart was mocked by former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher on social media last night in the wake of Manchester United's 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in their Champions League opener on Tuesday night.

Carragher tweeted a picture of Neville covering his face in anguish and added: "#NewProfilePic."

It drew a thunderous reaction online, as the former Reds defender kept the image as his main one beyond the match.

Carragher's cheeky shot came in response to an earlier tweet from Neville, who looked smug after Ronaldo had shot United into an early lead.

But the tide soon turned, for Neville and United, as boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left to rue a first half red card for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

It had looked as though Klopp was set for a rough result too as two quickfire goals from AC Milan cancelled out Fikayo Tomori's own goal which had nudged Liverpool in front.

But Salah and Henderson worked their magic for the second half to cap a rousing Reds fightback on another famous European night at Anfield.

And Klopp was quick to praise the football his side played barring Milan's late show before the interval.

"We started incredibly well," Klopp told BT Sport.

"We played in all the spaces we had to play, didn’t give them anything until … I don’t know exactly.

"We got carried away actually by all the football. We didn’t keep it simple any more and defensively weren’t organised any more. They played in between, scored two goals.

It wasn’t nice but it didn’t feel like we cannot come back. We had to immediately get back to how we started, defensively especially, then we scored wonderful goals.

"We had 10 minutes where Milan nearly changed the whole tie. Apart from the 10 minutes, it was the football I want to see."
