An amusing clip of Gary Neville accidentally interrupting Jose Mourinho’s pre-Spurs vs Chelsea interview on Sky Sports, after spotting David De Gea’s howler during Manchester United’s meeting with Watford, has emerged online this evening.
Watford spring surprise
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men travelled to Vicarage Road earlier today, for their latest Premier League outing.
The two sides headed into proceedings on markedly-differing recent spells of form, with Manchester United having looked much improved of late.
The Red Devils had picked up impressive wins over the likes of Tottenham and Man City over recent weeks, amid a run of just 1 defeat in their last 10 across all competitions.
Watford, on the other hand, had lost 4 of their last 5 fixtures, leaving the Hornets propping up the English top-flight before kick-off this afternoon.
As such, when all was said and done, and the hosts emerged from Vicarage Road with all 3 points, it came as a major surprise.
A woeful display on the part of United saw Watford take full advantage, with a pair of quickfire goals shortly after the interval having eventually proved the difference between the sides.
36% – Under Ole Gunnar Solskjear, Man Utd have won 73% (8/11) of the @premierleague games in which they have had less possession than their opponents, compared to just 36% (10/28) when they’ve enjoyed more – including just 1 of their last 17 such matches. Interesting. #WATMUN pic.twitter.com/rpJeqw7VCQ

Highlights: Watford 2-0 Man United
Neville interrupts Mourinho
Watford’s go-ahead strike this afternoon, courtesy of Ismaila Sarr, came after a terrible mistake on the part of David De Gea.
A tame effort towards the top right-hand corner of the Manchester United goal saw the Spaniard inexplicably allow the ball to slip through his grasp, despite what should have been a routine catch.
And one individual who evidently couldn’t quite believe what he had witnessed from De Gea was Gary Neville.
Working backstage on Sky Sports ahead of Tottenham’s meeting with Chelsea, the Red Devils legend erupted upon Watford taking the lead over his former side.
This actually saw Neville interrupt the pre-match interview of Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, leading to an amusing exchange.
Check out the footage below:
😂 It’s fair to say @GNev2 could not believe what he was seeing there, watching David De Gea’s error.
