Roy Keane had the Sky Sports pundits in stitches with his post-match analysis of the Liverpool-Arsenal game

Following Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Anfield, Roy Keane had the Sky Sports studio in fits of laughter with his post-match analysis.

The game had been thrilling, with Arsenal taking an early 2-0 lead through Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus before Liverpool fought back with goals from Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Salah had a chance to level the score from the penalty spot but missed his effort.

However, the match was not without controversy, as a linesman appeared to elbow Liverpool defender Andy Robertson during the half-time interval.

Despite the serious nature of the incident, Keane’s witty remarks had the studio in absolute stitches.

Following Jamie Carragher’s tweet about the incident, Sky Sports provided several different camera angles of the altercation between Andy Robertson and Constantine Hatzidakis.

The footage showed Hatzidakis raising his elbow after Robertson had grabbed him, prompting the Scottish defender to become visibly angry.

Robertson was eventually booked by referee Paul Tierney, but his fury did not subside as he continued to vent his frustration while walking down the tunnel toward the dressing room.

But Keane did not have any sympathy for the left-back and simply branded him a “big baby” in a half-time rant where he told Robertson to “concentrate on his defending”.

The bizarre altercation was a key discussion point after the game but Keane doubled down on his comments and again repeated his “baby” jibe on many an occasion.

“What’s he going over to him for and what’s he complaining for? I said it at half-time, Robertson what a baby. What a big baby. Get on with the game… Baby.”

The final use of the word tipped the whole studio over the edge, with Roy Keane, Jamie Carragher, Gary Neville and David Jones in utter hysterics and unable to hide their laughter.

Even Keane himself was laughing in an utterly brilliant moment.

Manager Jurgen Klopp made no comment on the matter even though he said he seen what happened.

Pundits have been calling for the assistant referee to receive a substantial ban for lashing out and PGMOL, the body which governs referees, issued a statement to say they were investigating the incident.
