Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher came face to face in the Sky Sports studios for the first time since their heated row last month.
The pair came to verbal blows following Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Manchester United in January as Roy Keane passionately defended former team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer amid growing pressure.
Carragher initially played devil’s advocate before the fiery pair got heated and raised their voices in a full-blown row with Patrice Evra and Graeme Souness watching on.
They returned to the studio together with host David Jones in the build-up to Manchester United’s clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Presenter Jones could not help but bring up the debate as they started to talk about Frank Lampard’s Chelsea reign, which was used by Keane to defend Solskjaer.
The first mention of the incident prompted a noticeable response in the form of a wry smile from Carragher and Keane as they grinned and made eye contact with each other.
Later in the show, the pair laughed with Jones as Carragher joked: “What’s that, 16 months he’s been in the job now?” in reference to a factual error he made in their discussion a few weeks ago.
Whilst the pair largely avoided getting into another disagreement, Keane was still pulling no punches – particularly as they discussed Arsenal’s win over Newcastle at the weekend.
He took aim at the Gunners for the way they wildly celebrated Alexandre Lacazette’s goal deep in stoppage time to wrap up the 4-0 win.
The Frenchman was mobbed by his team-mates after finding the back of the net for the first time since early December, but Keane was not impressed.
“Way over the top,” Keane declared on Sky Sports when asked if he liked Arsenal’s celebrations.
“When I was watching it, I thought they were 10 points clear in the league, the way they were celebrating towards the end.
