Roy Keane and Micah Richards were reunited on punditry duty for Sunday's blockbuster opening weekend tie between Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

They were joined by Daniel Sturridge, former player of both clubs, who has come aboard the Sky Sports ship for 2023-24, alongside iconic commentator Peter Drury.

Keane and Richards' dynamic has been one of the most well-received elements of Sky's football coverage in recent seasons, and they showed what has made them such a popular duo with a brilliant video shared to Sky Sports' social media ahead of kick-off.

Roy Keane and Micah Richards hilariously debate "biggest baby" on Sky Sports panel

Roy Keane made headlines last season with his reaction to an incident between Andy Robertson and the linesman during Liverpool's thrilling draw with Arsenal at Anfield in April.

Robertson alleged he had been elbowed in the face, to which Keane responded by saying: "Robertson, does he grab the linesman first? I'm not sure, but he starts complaining. He should be more worried about his defending. Do you know what is that Robertson, I've watched him a number of times, he's a big baby. That's what that guy is."


The phrase "big baby" immediately took on iconic status in the pantheon of football punditry quotes, and Sky utilised it to put together a tongue-in-cheek video for social media on Sunday afternoon.

Keane and his counterpart Micah Richards were asked to name the "biggest baby" on the Sky Sports panel - with Richards hilariously going on the defensive straight away.

Micah Richards: Don't even look at me, what are you looking at me for?!

Roy Keane: To have a conversation about it! You're paranoid, I'm bouncing off you!0

Though Jamies Carragher and Redknapp were suggested as potential answers, as well as the recently departed Graeme Souness, it did not take much convincing from Richards for Keane to agree on the best candidate:

Roy Keane: Nev? Jamie? Graeme?

Micah Richards: If Liverpool are playing, it's Carra. But, overall...G Nev. I'm sick and tired of his complaining.

Keane: You've had a fall out with him recently, though, a business deal's gone a bit...

Richards: It's gone south!

Keane: It's personal, isn't it?

Richards: It is personal, to be honest...Nev's the one who comes in - you could be having a great day, Nev would come in and start ruffling feathers, moaning about something.

Keane: I've not done a deal yet with Neville. I'll just have to charge him a few quid! The Overlap - read the small print...if it's a vote, I'll go with Neville.

Gary Neville was on commentary duty for Sky alongside Jamie Carragher for the game, which saw an outstanding assist from Mo Salah for Luis Diaz get Liverpool off the mark for the new season.

Fans will hope to see plenty more of the brilliant Keane-Richards rapport during the season ahead.
