VIDEO: Jamie Carragher Goes Bonkers as Gary Neville Tries to Ignore Steven Gerrard in FIFA 16 Ultimate Team

Jamie Carragher lost the plot when Gary Neville contemplated not picking Steven Gerrard in their FIFA 16 Ultimate Team.

The Sky Sports pundits were both tasked with picking a starting XI in the new FIFA Ultimate Team Draft mode.

That meant both of them agreeing on tough decisions over whether to make Lionel Messi their captain and if Real Madrid’s Marcelo deserved a spot ahead of Bayern Munich’s David Alaba.

Neville got the call on most picks given he had the control pad in his hand.

But Carragher couldn’t sit back and watch the former Manchester United full-back go dangerously close to dropping out former Liverpool team-mate and best pal Steven Gerrard from the team.

Instead, the Kop legend did some serious campaigning on his behalf before wrestling the controller from Neville and selecting the LA Galaxy midfielder in the team.

That was the biggest disagreement in a great trailer from EA Sports.

There are several hilarious moments, including Carragher picking the striker with his eyes half-closed and Neville celebrating their late winner in exactly the same way he did Fernando Torres’ strike at the Nou Camp in 2012 when Chelsea made it to the Champions League final thanks to a 2-2 draw with Barcelona.
