Jamie Carragher's Analysis Of Micah Richards Spitting Out His Food While Celebrating Is Gold

Jamie Carragher provided some priceless analysis after Micah Richards spat out his food while celebrating Kevin De Bruyne's opener during Manchester City's dramatic 4-3 win against Real Madrid.

It didn't take long for Pep Guardiola's side to get going in the Champions League semi-final, first leg at the Etihad.

De Bruyne, who has been one of the club's best performers this season, guided a header past Los Blancos goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois with just 94 seconds on the clock after a pinpoint cross from Riyad Mahrez.

Moments after De Bruyne found the back of the net, former City defender Micah Richards produced a save Courtois would have been proud of.

The 33-year-old was tucking into a big tea while on punditry duty for CBS Sports but that didn't stop him from celebrating.

And as the former England international screamed the studio down, a stray piece of pasta tried to get away – a moment that was later analysed by fellow pundit Jamie Carragher. It made for great viewing.

Carragher said: “Listen, this has to be analysed. When we talk about some of the technicians we had on the show today: [Toni] Kroos, [Luka] Modric, [Kevin] De Bruyne, [Bernardo] Silva… no one produced a better first-touch and control of a situation than Micah Richards with the pasta.

“Look at this here… He thinks he’s lost it, miscontrolled it… but then look at this!

"Forget Luka Modric, we’ve got Micah! Big Meeks is back!”

Fans online were loving the segment. One said: "The most contagious laugh ever. @MicahRichards producing class moments again, what a guy." while another wrote: "Funniest thing I’ve seen all week."

A third commented: "Honestly the highlight of my weeks is this panel on CL nights! Amazing, funny chemistry between Carragher, Henry, and Richards and genuinely really good insight from each."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola knows the tie is far from over ahead of next week's semi-final, second leg in Madrid.

“Regardless of the result, if it was 2-0 or 3-0 we would still have to go to Bernabéu and play well. If we play like we did in the second half, we won’t be able to win," he said after the full-time whistle.

"If we play like we did at other periods, we will. We want to be there to put on a good show, that is what I want to tell my players to do – don’t think of anything else.

“When I became a footballer and a manager, when you go to the Bernabéu you have to perform as yourself or there is no option to win. You have to come through these situations to win the Champions League.”

How good was that analysis from Carragher, though?
