Arsenal legend Martin Keown suffers embarrassing blunder live on TV and Declan Rice has no idea what to say | The Sun
ARSENAL legend Martin Keown suffered an embarrassing blunder on live TV.
But Gunners star Declan Rice had no idea what to say.
Arsenal closed in on a Champions League last-16 spot as they beat Sevilla 2-0 at the Emirates on Wednesday.
Goals from Leandro Trossard and Bukayo Saka delivered the goods for the north London crowd.
But there was an injury worry for the latter, who hobbled as he was forced off the pitch with a setback.
Despite the blow, there was still time for a chuckle late on in the game.

Former Arsenal star Keown was working as a pundit for TNT Sport when he decided to get in on the action.
As he stood by the sideline waiting for the final whistle, the ball came flying towards him.
Keown attempted to deftly touch the ball before returning it into play.
Instead, he botched his attempt as the ball knocked the side of his shoe.

It span away, forcing Keown to jolt towards it for a second touch.
But he was unable to catch the ball and abandoned his chase after a few seconds.
Keown had a wry smile on his face as he realised his mistake.
And the crowd behind him were loving it too, with many laughing and cheering.
TNT Sports host Laura Woods decided to bring up the incident after full-time as Keown and fellow pundit Rio Ferdinand interviewed Arsenal midfielder Rice.
But he was left speechless as the others bantered about Keown’s faux pas.
Keown said: “I’m not happy with that kick, I know Declan’s critical of his performances at times.
“I’m looking a bit ragged to be fair. Too much polish on my shoes, it’s just spun off.”
Woods noted: “You probably didn’t hear but you got the biggest cheer of the night.”
Ferdinand joked: “You needed those red Pumas didn’t you?”
Keown responded: “I did, I couldn’t play without them.”
