Gary Neville superbly trolled an Arsenal fan who called for him and Jamie Carragher to be "banned from the Emirates".
The Monday Night Football duo were both on duty for Sky Sports as the Gunners suffered a controversial 1-0 defeat away at Newcastle in the late Premier League kick-off on Saturday. Neville was on co-commentary while Carragher was a pundit in the studio.
They each condemned the response from Mikel Arteta and his club to the trio of VAR decisions regarding Anthony Gordon's goal, which further riled up their fans – with one arguing they shouldn't be allowed to attend their home games anymore.

The supporter in question posted: "Arsenal should just tell Sky Sports that both Carragher and Neville are both banned from The Emirates. It’s our property so we’ll invite who we want inside it thank you very much [middle finger emoji]."
Neville gave a brilliant response 12 hours later on Monday (November 6) morning, hitting back: "To be fair with Spurs top now we will be coming less anyway [winking face]."

That appeared to make the fan back-track as they responded: "Well, looks like I upset a plethora of fans yesterday with my tongue in cheek post about Neville and Carragher and their attendance at The Emirates.
"Great to see rival fans frothing at the mouth and taking things so seriously! Neville has even commented as well….job done… COYG!"
Neville had trolled Arsenal over the weekend too after they issued a statement calling for the standards of refereeing to improve. "I agree Havertz probably should have gone", he commented, referencing the German's poor challenge on Sean Longstaff for which he escaped with a yellow.
It wasn't just the Gunners who he went after either. Responding to a Man City fan who had suggested Sir Alex Ferguson "had referees in his back pocket", Neville pointed out: "Don’t you lot start we never had 115 charges against us."
