ROY KEANE appeared to take a cheeky dig at Sky Sports pal Jamie Carragher after Chelsea trounced Aston Villa in the FA Cup.

Conor Gallagher got under-pressure Mauricio Pochettino’s side off to a flying start after just 11 minutes and then Nicolas Jackson doubled the advantage shortly afterwards.
But the goal of the game came moments into the second half when Enzo Fernandez scored a brilliant free-kick past his fellow Argentina World Cup winner Emiliano Martinez from 30 yards.
That sparked wild scenes as he and his Chelsea team-mates rushed to celebrate in front of the away supporters.
The 23-year-old copied Lionel Messi’s famous celebration in 2017 after he had scored the 500th goal of his Barcelona career in a win over Real Madrid.
Fernandez removed his shirt before holding it up to show off his name and number to the crowd, with his colleagues then taking it and performing the same trick.
Villa pulled a late goal back but it was too little, too late, as Chelsea and Poch put the miserable 4-2 home defeat to Wolves firmly behind them.
ITV were covering the game and had the usually fiery Keane and ex-England Women’s star Karen Carney on punditry duty for them.
And after watching the celebratory scenes again, Carney tongue-in-cheekily said in a blatant nod to Carragher: “Talk about over celebrating a bit.”
Keane, with a big grin, then shocked everyone by responding with: “Let them enjoy it.”
That came after Martin Odegaard hit back at Sky Sports pundits for their criticism over Arsenal’s post-match scenes following their win over Liverpool.
Mikel Arteta revved up the Emirates crowd with Jurgen Klopp-esque fist pumps while Odegaard used a camera to take pictures of club photographer Stuart Macfarlane.
Liverpool legend Carragher then said: “Just get down the tunnel. You’ve won a game. It’s three points.
“They’re back in the title race, get down the tunnel. I’m serious, honestly.”
Carragher then became embroiled in a war of words with ex-Premier League star Jan Aage Fjortoft over Odegaard’s celebration.
However after Keane, who’s famed for his angry rants on TV over the years, stuck up for the Blues, the club’s supporters were quick to show the ex-Manchester United captain some love.
“Roy I misjudged you,” responded one.
Another wrote: “Roy Keane what a guy.”
While a third added: “Perhaps I treated you too harshly Roy.”
