Jamie Carragher's hilarious reaction during a chat with Neville has also been well received by fans across the world. Joined by the controversial football agent Kia Joorabchian who represents Carlos Tevez, the trio sat down for a chat about the former EPL attacker.

Neville claimed that Tevez's attitude in his final days at Manchester United was pitiful, which did not go down well with the Iranian businessman. Amidst all the chaos, Carragher proceeded to eat a bag of chips, indicating that he enjoyed the drama between the pair.

Tevez's time in the Premier League was controversial. The Argentine attacker spent two seasons with Manchester United but shocked the world with his decision to move to EPL rivals Manchester City.

Liverpool are just two wins away from mathematically sealing their first EPL trophy in 30 years. However, their wait for the Premier League title is set to continue for the time being, with no return being confirmed as things stand.

The Premier League's 'Project Restart' is in full swing, but a lot of details are yet to be ironed out. The idea of completing the rest of the games on neutral grounds has faced opposition from several teams from the bottom six, as they are unwilling to forego home advantage amidst a relegation scrap.

However, the 2019-20 season of the EPL will be completed at all costs when it is safe to do so.
