Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville faced off against each other in a repeat of last year’s sprint across a Premier League pitch, but this time hosted their showdown at Villa Park.

The duo were caught on camera by Villa assistant head coach John Terry, and it was the former Liverpool stalwart who emerged on top despite Neville originally leading the way.

After Carragher edged to victory, the 41-year-old then hinted a third edition of the race would take place next season.

Both former players are renowned for their verbal scraps on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, having represented Liverpool and Manchester United respectively during their illustrious careers.

And last year’s top flight campaign saw the two take to the field against each other once again to host an impromptu sprint after a question posed by a viewer – with Carragher narrowly clinching the win at Brighton’s Amex Stadium.

The Bootle-born ex-star then doubled his series lead over Neville in the build up to Villa’s clash with Everton on Friday evening.

Terry’s footage of the race appeared to be filmed from one of the director’s boxes in the 42,682 capacity venue, although the former Chelsea defender jokingly warned the competitors to keep off the pitch in his Instagram story.

Carragher had previously admitted to disliking his punditry partner during his playing days, but admitted last year that the pair are now ‘never off the phone to each other’.
