Grab your popcorn. Roy Keane is back as a regular Premier League pundit.

[ STREAM: Every PL match live

The legendary Manchester United midfielder, who won seven PL titles with the Red Devils, has been announced as Sky Sports’ latest new pundit, joining Jose Mourinho, Gary Neville, Graeme Souness and Jamie Carragher among others.

In a statement released on Saturday, our partners as Sky say Keane will be with them ‘throughout the season’ and his first game in the studio will be at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea v. Liverpool this Sunday (Watch live, 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).

“I’ve worked with Sky Sports quite a few times over the years and it’s always been an experience I’ve enjoyed, so this makes absolute sense,” Keane said. “While I’m not coaching I still want to be involved in the game and in some ways, this is the next best thing.

“It’s a game of opinions, I’ve never shied away from giving mine and that’s only going to continue this season. Sky Sports has always been famous for the heated debates – I look forward to starting a few more.”

Keane will be appointment viewing, and just like in his playing days, he is never scared to tell it how it is. And then some. He has been working as a pundit for ITV covering England games and international tournaments, while he has also been the assistant coach for the Republic of Ireland, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest in recent seasons.

After being a head coach at Sunderland and Ipswich Town in the past, he now appears to be focusing more on punditry.

Expect plenty of heated debates between Mourinho and Keane in the Sky Sports studio this season.

Scouting report gives high praise for USMNT, Newcastle back Yedlin

You may remember Danny Higginbotham from his time as a defender at Sunderland, Stoke City, Derby County, and Southampton, but these days he makes his dough as an analyst.

You almost certainly remember USMNT right back and speed merchant DeAndre Yedlin, though perhaps not seeing him on your television has limited your intake on his progress since leaving Tottenham Hotspur for Newcastle United.

Yedlin’s been very decent for the Magpies, making 23 appearances while providing a goal and five assists. Higginbotham has been impressed, and devoted a good portion of his prematch notes on Newcastle-Aston Villa to the American.

From Sky Sports:

Yedlin plays almost as a right winger at times. He’s the one that gives the width on that side, and he has been a standout player in recent games.

He is so quick, so he can get back with his recovery runs, but it’s what he does with the ball as well. We see him controlling the whole of the right-hand side. He has been so key for Newcastle and he gives them such an attacking threat.

Newcastle will move back atop the Championship with a win over Aston Villa on Monday, and have a five-point lead on third-place Huddersfield Town in the race for an automatic promotion place. Brighton and Hove Albion is first, two points clear of the Magpies.
