Simon Thomas inexplicably called Edouard Mendy 'Benjamin Mendy' on air - Patrice Evra's reaction says it all.
During the build-up to Manchester United vs. Arsenal, Simon heaped praise on Aaron Ramsdale as he compared him to the Chelsea stopper.
The Amazon Prime host singled out the England international's save percentage before saying the Senegalese only has a better record.
However, he referenced Benjamin, who's currently in prison, instead of Edouard in a horrific blunder live on air.
Evra's stunned reaction spoke volumes as he looked at his fellow pundits in disgust.

It comes after Evra suggested that Mendy was snubbed of winning the Lev Yashin trophy for racial reasons.
Speaking on Instagram, the former Man United defender said: "The goalkeeper... what about Edouard Mendy?
"But of course, African Cup, we are the monkeys, so no one respects this competition.
"We are the only competition where you have to leave your club, leave for three weeks and play that cup because in Africa we always have a little space.
"But things will change, things will change."
