Jamie Carragher has accused Manchester United of an ‘Everton mentality’ after Gary Neville claimed the Red Devils are ‘not ready’ to challenge for the Premier League title following their North-West derby stalemate with Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s side had 66 per cent possession and 17 shots against arch-rivals and Premier League leaders United but managed just three on target in a goalless draw which saw them drop to fourth in the table.

Despite having less possession, it was Anfield’s visitors who had the better of the chances in the match and many have argued they could have accelerated their efforts to find a winner late on and improve their title credentials.
Neville, however, has insisted his former side do not have the mentality of a title-winning side to win these important games yet – especially as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was under immense pressure just a month ago.
He told Sky Sports: “There was a point in the game yesterday where I said that if this wasn’t Liverpool and at Anfield, Manchester United would be a lot more positive.
“I genuinely believe that this team is not ready and not right yet to be able to adapt it’s mind from seven or eight weeks ago – where the manager was reportedly on the brink – to seven weeks later thinking their title winners.
“@Carra23, do you agree with @GNev2?”
“No. I don’t agree with any of that…”

“I don’t think they’re ready. The best teams, the champions team are able to do that and are able to step up, but this team is not a champion team.
“I don’t think any Manchester United fan or any pundit or analyst thinks that.”
Carragher disagreed with his colleague, insisting victory was within United’s grasp and they could have ‘smelt’ that from how the match panned out.
“Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and here is a player who won everything at that club,” he argued.
“You think of the mentality of Manchester United and a ‘champions team’ – you don’t have to be a ‘champion team’ to smell something in the game.”

Carragher added: “You’re talking like Manchester United are a small team. I likened it to an Everton mentality.
“What I mean by that is, when I was a kid going to Anfield as an Everton fan, a draw was the biggest thing in the world.”
United remain two points clear at the top of the table following the draw.
However, local rivals Man City are now on their tail and could leapfrog them in the standings if they win their game in hand.
