Monday Night Football returns with some classic Premier League games

Monday Night Football

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher are back tonight to look at some iconic Premier League games.

We’re all missing the live sport that we’re so used to watching.

Some of us have essentially been made to quit cold turkey, while others are watching match repeats and sports documentaries to satisfy our cravings.

And if you’re really stuck for some Premier League football, Monday Night Football is returning tonight where Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher will cast their minds back on classic football matches.

The pair will run the rule over Leeds’ dramatic 4-3 win over Liverpool back in November 2000 – a game the Reds were winning 2-0 until four-goal Mark Viduka inspired a stunning turnaround.

They’ll also analyse Manchester United’s 6-1 rout of Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal in February 2001 as Dwight Yorke’s first-half hat-trick set Sir Alex Ferguson’s side on their way to a crushing win that edged them closer to a seventh league title in nine years.

One hour will be devoted to each game in the show, featuring match highlights, chat and plenty of personal anecdotes as Neville and Carragher serve up your football fix as best they can.

Monday Night Football kicks off tonight at 7pm and will end at 9.
