Video footage has surfaced depicting what seems to be an intense confrontation between Micah Richards and Roy Keane and an unidentified member of the public at Sunday’s Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester United.
Richards and Keane were both fulfilling their roles as pundits for Sky Sports during the game, which concluded with Arsenal winning 3-1. The match featured goals from Martin Odegaard, Declan Rice, and Gabriel Jesus, while Marcus Rashford initially put United in the lead.
After the match, a video began circulating on social media showing Richards seemingly engaged in a physical altercation with an unidentified individual.
The video clip shows Micah Richards grabbing the man by his shirt and pressing him against a door. Roy Keane is visible in the clip, vocally expressing himself and making gestures toward the man. There is also another man and a woman standing nearby.
It remains unclear what prompted the incident and whether it occurred before or after the Premier League match.
During the match, Marcus Rashford scored for United against the run of play in the first half before Martin Odegaard immediately equalized for Arsenal. Gary Neville, recently retired Theo Walcott, and regular presenter David Jones were part of the Sky Sports coverage team for the match.

United thought they had scored a winner late on when Rasmus Hojlund, on debut, set up Alejandro Garncho to find the net.
But his goal was ruled out for offside following a VAR review, despite one angle appearing to show the Argentine in an onside position.
Arsenal then took the lead in added time, Declan Rice putting them ahead from a corner before Gabriel Jesus sealed the win with a well-taken finish.
Victory for Arsenal moved them up to fifth in the Premier League, having taken 10 points from their opening four games.
United, meanwhile, are now 11th – having won two and lost two on their first four matches.
