When discussing the achievement after the 3-2 Red Devils victory on Amazon Prime, Evra brought up Carragher’s name.
And Evra clearly took offence to the argument, as he made a dig towards Carragher at the first available opportunity.
“There’s a lot of talk about this player, and I already don’t understand it,” Evra said.
“Some players like Jamie Carragher, he had I think 775 games, Cristiano today scored 801 goals, and those kind of people talk about Cristiano.
“Sometimes I think people just have to stay in their line, and I just don’t understand that hate.
“Some people just wake up and want to talk about Cristiano.”
Who is in the right – Carragher or Evra? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
The benefits of having Ronaldo back at Old Trafford are clear to see, with him by far and away their top scorer this season.
His brace against the Gunners, which included the 800th and 801st goals of his legendary career, took him to 12 strikes for the season in all competitions.
But Carragher, along with others, has questioned his work-rate for the team and what impact he is having on that front.
Such suggestions about their club legend were always going to rile up the United fanbase, and Keane was adamant Ronaldo must start all major games.
He could find himself on the bench more often due to his lack of pressing under new manager Ralf Rangnick, though.
Rangnick, the pioneer of the intense gegenpress, will no doubt have higher demands of the 36-year-old than previous boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, which may lead to more back and forth between pundits.
