Naturally, he also received endless abuse from Man City fans in countless derbies, they fondly christened him 'Nervous Neville', so there's no prizes for guessing where his loyalties lie ahead of today's derby.

The Sky Sports pundit is always a welcome presence on our TV screens and like Jamie Carragher, he isn't afraid to have a pop at his boyhood club, so no one can claim he's 100% biased.

This being said, there's no denying where his allegiances lie ahead of today's game after he sent out this tweet to his 'adoring' Man City fans.
