Keane almost laughed as Sturridge spoke to Trent Alexander-Arnold

Sturridge even did an amusing impression of Keane which did not amuse the pundit

He made his first appearance of the season as his two former sides faced off at Stamford Bridge, while also providing insight into Brentford’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

And he got fans talking after sparking laughter from Trent Alexander-Arnold after telling the right-back to “keep it funky with your boy”.

Keane remained stoned-faced during the exchange but almost cracked a smile, provoking a response from Sturridge.

The pundit reacted to the clip saying: “My goal this season is to make Roy crack a smile with the vibes ”

Viewers were left in stitches at Keane’s motionless response to Sturridge, and it appears the Irishman is still yet to be won over by his new colleague.

Keane was also not amused when Sturridge did an impression of his famous “big baby” comment, with the former Manchester United midfielder rolling his eyes in response.

Sturridge, 33, even wowed viewers by incredibly singing Usher live on Sky Sports – although many joked that the notorious no-nonsense Keane would soon be handing in his notice.

It was a tough day at the office for Keane as Micah Richards also mocked him for his packed lunch.


Richards described Keane’s ham sandwich as “nonsense” as he and his colleagues tucked into some hot food.

Meanwhile Sturridge also won praise for his entertaining analysis of Brentford forward Bryan Mbuemo.
