Both pundits were at Anfield and the Etihad Stadium last weekend as Manchester City produced an incredible comeback to beat Aston Villa and pip Liverpool to the league title.

At halftime in both games though, it seemed as though Liverpool would have the advantage as City were surprisingly behind while Liverpool were level with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Fearing his worst nightmare may come true, that the Reds would go on to win the league and move one step closer to a historic quadruple, Neville sent his concerns to his good friend Carragher.

Carragher revealed the hilarious texts to the live audience.

In a live recording of Neville's show The Overlap, Carragher dug out the messages, exclaiming that 'this had been going on all season."

He said: "This has been going on all season, let me tell you this. Liverpool play Chelsea in the second game of the season, he's texting me after the game, 'Liverpool aren't right. They're not right. They're not the same.

"He tries to convince himself... here we are, I'll tell you what we'll do, we'll get his texts out from halftime. He's trying to kid himself."

Neville tried to protest his innocence but before he could, Carragher abruptly interrupted him saying: "Oh no, we're going through the texts': "***** City, you do your job, you'll win this. It's a f***ing disaster of monstrous proportions... I'm f***ing off if you win this!"

Neville's worst fears didn't come true in the end.

Thankfully for the former Man United defender his dystopian nightmare that Liverpool would go on to win the league never came to fruition.

Jurgen Klopp's side did win 3-1 against Wolves but there efforts came to nothing as City rallied to come from two goals down and beat Villa 3-2 thanks to two goals from Ilkay Gundogan either side of Rodri's long-range strike.
