CARRA V KEANE

Due to Manchester United's decline in recent years, the matches against Liverpool don't have the same prestige as before, at least outwith the Premier League PR bubble. Even though the game only finished 2-0 to Jurgen Klopp's men on Sunday, it was comfortable for them throughout, with United not putting up much of a fight even though they started the first 10 minutes impressively.

Indeed, there was probably more fire and passion shown from Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher in the studio, as they argued over the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Irishman defended his former team-mate, adding in a dig to Frank Lampard for good measure, but Carragher wasn't having it.

DAD DANCING FROM SHEARER

Newcastle moved up to 12th in the Premier League table on Saturday after defeating Chelsea 1-0 at St. James' Park. The winning goal came in injury time from Isaac Hayden as he sent the stadium into raptures.

There was someone else celebrating in another part of the country, though, as this video from Gary Lineker shows Alan Shearer abandoning his famous one-armed celebration for this fetching little hop about.
