Jamie Carragher: Manchester United looked like an under-16s team

Yaya Toure

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher stuck the boot into Manchester United during their mauling away to Manchester City.

Manchester United fans won't be enjoying themselves right now, but it's hard to believe Jamie Carragher wasn't smirking in the Sky studio this afternoon.

The Liverpool legend was analysing the Manchester Derby, in which Manchester City crushed the Red Devils 4-1.

In truth it could have been a wider margin, with City taking their foot off the gas after scoring their fourth early into the second half.

Much was made before the game of United's new midfielder Marouane Fellaini, but he could not help them get a foothold in the game.

Dominant as always in the middle was City's Yaya Toure, who was the recipient of much praise during and after the match.

Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher could not resist the opportunity to take a dig at old foes United in the process, stating:

"It's like watching a full international player going up against under-16s."

Harsh, although to be fair we are pretty sure united could have found an under-16 player to perform better than Ashley Young.

What do you think of Carragher's comment, was he right?
