Neville: 'Painful for me to watch' Liverpool right now

You can't imagine few Liverpool fans care too much about it, but apparently Sky Sport's commentator and former Man Utd captain Gary Neville says it's painful to watch Liverpool.

Having carried on this season where we left off last, with our straight wins in the Premier League now surpassing the record set in 2014 of 11, as we hit 12 yesterday.

We've also gone since January at the Etihad since last losing in the Premier League, totalling 20 unbeaten but it's at home where the truly impressive record is. The Reds have yet to lose at Anfield in the league since that defeat to Crystal Palace in 2016.

So to see the European Cup winners storm to 9 points from 9 at the start of the season in comfortable fashion has been hard for Neville who told Sky Sports after the match: "Liverpool have signed three £30million strikers and turned them into £150m strikers, each and every one of them.

"They weren't that good, now they're outstanding. This is a really good team, and painful for me to watch personally."

The Reds will take on Burnley away next Saturday, looking to extend their lead to 12 points ahead of the international break, whilst Man City will take on Brighton at the Etihad.
