Watch: Micah Richards & Roy Keane caught in heated altercation with fan after Arsenal vs Man United


Head-turning footage of the aftermath of the Premier League showdown between Arsenal and Manchester United has come to the fore online on Sunday evening.

The latest chapter in one of the fiercest rivalries in English football, of course, played out earlier today.

And, when all was said and done, it was hosts Arsenal who emerged on the right side of the result, courtesy of the most remarkable of last-gasp comebacks.

As alluded to above, though, on Sunday night, it is not the action on the pitch which has piqued widespread attentions online.

Instead, this comes in the form of developments post-match at The Emirates.

For those who were not lucky enough to watch on, Roy Keane and Micah Richards were part of a four-man punditry team responsible for Sky Sports’ coverage of today’s action in north London.

After seeing out their duties, however, the pair, it would appear, were involved in an unsavoury exchange at Arsenal’s ground.

This comes with footage having surfaced on social media of of Richards angrily holding onto an unidentified individual, whilst both he and Keane, in the background, berate the man in question.

No further information as to exactly what happened has been revealed.

*Update* - Sky Sports have since provided some clarity regarding the incident, confirming that Micah Richards was attempting to ‘diffuse the situation’, after ‘an alleged assault by a member of the public’:

“We understand the police are investigating an alleged assault by a member of the public immediately preceding the footage circulating on social media. In the footage seen, Micah Richards was acting to diffuse a situation,” a spokesperson revealed.
