Jamie Carragher sarcastically trolls Man United supporters

Jamie Carragher couldn't help but aim a dig at his old foes this week...

Jamie Carragher could not help but aim a dig at Manchester United and their supporters as the former Liverpool defender looked back at some of the stats of 2015.

The Red Devils’ struggles in recent weeks have been well-documented, with Louis van Gaal’s side now without a win in eight games in all competitions.

United’s stuttering form has caused them to drop out of the top four, with Van Gaal’s men now in sixth place in the Premier League table and five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur heading into the new year.

Carragher was asked to look back at some of the Premier League statistics of 2015 on Sky Sports on Wednesday night, and surprisingly United topped the total of possession during the calendar year with 62 per cent despite their struggles.

However, the Liverpool legend couldn’t help but aim a thinly veiled dig at the Red Devils when told about the statistic.

Carragher said: “Yeah, they’ve had a lot of criticism of late, Manchester United, so I think them and their supporters should be really proud of that.”
