Watch: Neville & Carragher argue over the greatest English sides of all time


Liverpool’s incredible form so far this season has prompted a debate over which side are the greatest English team of all time. 

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher weighed in on the debate during Monday Night Football and looked back at some of the best sides from the last 50 years.

The pair had a great section to chose from with 12 different teams under consideration including Brian Clough’s Nottingham Forest and Jose Mourinho’s first Chelsea team.

Unsurprisingly, Neville argued that Manchester United’s 2006-09 team are the greatest side English football has ever seen as they won three consecutive league titles and a Champions League.

But Carragher admitted that the Arsenal side between 2001 and 2004 were the best Premier League team he ever came up against.

After using their own points system based on achievements and trophies won, Bob Paisley’s Liverpool team from 1975-1978 eventually came out on top.
