“In cup competitions, anything can happen,” Neville said. “In the Premier League we looked at City and thought it was an easy run-in, but really it’s because we’re looking at the Merseyside derby and Manchester United which in an ordinary season would be difficult.
“These two teams are terrible, they could be easier than any of the teams than any of the Manchester City teams.
“Watford are fighting for their lives, Leeds have to win games, Newcastle away (for Liverpool).
“You watch the Liverpool race, the Merseyside derby, Tottenham – you think it’s a tough race but it’s not.
“I would rather face Manchester United and Everton at home than West Ham away.”
