Jamie Carragher was grateful Gary Neville pulled his hamstring mid-way through Vincent Kompany testimonial after his error gifted the Manchester City legends an early goal.

Neville endured a nightmare opening minute at the Etihad, losing sight of Martin Petrov and leaving the former City star free to run through on goal.

After Petrov smashed the ball into the roof of the net, Carragher blasted Neville for abandoning his runner and leaving Petrov all alone on the wing.

Neville then pulled his hamstring and Carragher was relieved to see his fellow pundit hobble off.

"He gave a goal away in the first minute, pulls his hamstring and then after he goes off – we're fine!" 😂@Carra23 still isn't happy with @GNev2👀
