If you enjoyed the return of Match of the Day on Saturday, and you’re now concerned about where your next football fix is going to come from, don’t worry – Sky Sports have you covered.
Monday Night Football, complete with the best punditry duo on telly in Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher, is finally returning to our television screens tomorrow night.
To say that we’re all struggling without football would be an understatement, but thankfully, the team at MNF are compensating with a look back through the Premier League archives.
Alongside Dave Jones, Neville and Carragher will use their expertise to dissect two of the most memorable games in the history of the top flight in a special two-hour programme.
And needless to say, they’ll probably bicker and argue about them a bit, which will no doubt put a smile on our faces in what has been a difficult time for football fans the world over.
The new retro edition of the show will firstly focus on Leeds United’s famous 4-3 victory over Liverpool in November 2000, a game in which Carragher featured on the losing side.
Mark Viduka grabbed the headlines for Leeds on the day with an incredible four-goal rout, which overturned Liverpool’s 2-0 lead and no doubt left Carragher with some vivid memories.
The episode promises to be a much more enjoyable one for Gary Neville, who will be able to relive the part he played in Manchester United’s 6-1 victory over Arsenal in February 2001.
On that memorable afternoon, Dwight Yorke’s first-half hattrick sent United on their way to a seventh Premier League title in nine years, at the expense of Arsene Wenger’s pride.
An hour of airtime will be devoted to each of those two matches, with match highlights coloured with anecdotes and memories from the two men involved – Neville and Carragher.
‘Monday Night Football Retro’ will be shown live from 7pm on Sky Sports Premier League, with further Premier League rewinds set to air in the coming weeks.
