Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher appeared to brutally troll the Conservative Party and prime minister Boris Johnson with a subtle 'party' joke live on Sky Sports.

Neville and Carragher are part of Friday Night Football this evening and spoke ahead of Brighton vs Crystal Palace.

The duo couldn't resist a sly dig at Johnson, joking that the players need to know the difference between work and a party.

"It is a peculiar rivalry but to be fair, these Friday night football matches we were at Brentford last time it was fantastic... we always seem to get a party," Neville said before raising his eyebrows.

Carragher then takes over with: "Let's be straight this is NOT a party tonight, this is about work. If you speak to Graham Potter, Patrick Vieira, the 22 players on the pitch, they've got to know the difference between work and a party.

"If they get that wrong and think like they're in party mode, they're going to be in big, big trouble."

Both men and presenter David Jones managed to keep a straight face throughout the entire exchange.

Over 100 people were invited to a party at 10 Downing Street during the first UK lockdown in May 2020 and the scandal has rocked the entire country.

Johnson admits to being there, but claims he didn't know he was attending a party and instead believed it was a work event.

Fans caught Neville and Carragher's jibes and reacted on social media.

One commented: "Just waiting for the evening prime minister from Neville at the end!"

Another said: "How have they both kept a straight face through that?"

While a third put: "Superb. These two are incredible."

Neville has been vocal in his distrust of the current government and it was confirmed earlier on Friday he had joined the Labour Party.

The former Manchester United defender hasn't ruled out a foray into politics himself in the future.

Back on the pitch, victory for Brighton will see them move up to eighth.

Palace, meanwhile, will extend their gap above the relegation zone to 15 points.
