Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville to collide again next week during Man Utd vs. Liverpool FC

Sky Sports viewers can look forward to a rematch between Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher next week.

The pair will collide again for next Wednesday night's Capital One Cup third round tie between Manchester United and Liverpool, and will be joined in the studio by Jamie Redknapp, loading the odds against Neville by two former Liverpool players to one former United right-back.

Carragher and Neville clashed on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football when they were asked to rank Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Paul Scholes in terms of their ability as midfielders.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher did not shy away from responding, saying his former team-mate Gerrard was top, ahead of Lampard, who was "slightly ahead of Scholes for me."

This didn't sit well with Neville, who said: "Paul Scholes is the best player I've ever played with. He's a unique talent."

Carragher then questioned Scholes' legacy by asking why he was played on the left for England, as well as asking "why did Sir Alex Ferguson buy Veron then?"

Carragher laughed off the exchange in the Liverpool Echo, claiming that relations had improved since they stopped competing on the pitch.

"Oh no, there was no banter. We were rivals on the pitch all right," Carragher said on Wednesday.

"But when you stop playing a lot of it does die down, that intensity that you've got, that rivalry with Everton or Manchester United or Chelsea. When you stop playing it does ease off a bit.

"It's been good with Gary so far [working together on television]. I've enjoyed it. He's obviously passionate about Manchester United as I am Liverpool."

Was former Liverpool defender Carragher's choice reflective on the club's deep-rooted rivalry with Manchester United, or are Gerrard and Lampard better players than Scholes was? Watch Monday's debate by clicking on the video above, and have your say below!
