Jamie Carragher spooked by police horse when giving interview on Sky Sports News

Outspoken Monday Night Football pundit Jamie Carragher was bizarrely spooked by a police horse whilst conducting an interview on Sky Sports News.

The former Liverpool defender, 44, was giving his thoughts on Thomas Tuchel's brutal sacking at Chelsea when two police officers on horseback trotted behind Carragher on the road, causing him to jump out of his skin. Clearly not a fan of the sizeable stallions, the ex-England ace darted out the way with a begrudging mumble before cooly returning to answering the question.

Taking the scare in good spirits, the hilarious video recording was uploaded to his own Instagram account alongside the caption "When @premierleague defenders hear @erling.haaland is around," referencing the Manchester City strikers' incredible start to life in England.

Ex-Liverpool team-mate Robbie Keane was quick to jump in on the action, commenting three laughing face emojis on Carragher's post whilst there was also no horsing around from Leeds United under-21 star Sean McGurk who noted the same analysis as Keane.

Though Ed Chamberlin's fears of receiving the same treatment as Tuchel were quickly put to rest. The ITV Horse Racing presenter harked: "I don’t think my job would suit you, Carra…"

Graham Potter is the favourite to replace Tuchel in the Stamford Bridge hot seat, however, Carragher believes the Brighton boss should be "very wary" about making the switch to west London.

HAVE YOUR SAY! Were Chelsea right to axe Thomas Tuchel? Let us know in the comments section.

"I'm not exactly sure he's the exact fit," Carragher told Sky Sports News. "Chelsea are saying they want to do things differently in the future in terms of having a coach rather than a manager.

"But if I was Graham Potter I'd find that very hard to believe in the talks I'd be having with the new ownership at Chelsea that they're going to do things differently and he's going to be there for two or three years because they've just gotten rid of a manager within six games.

He added: "If I was Graham Potter, on the back of what they've done with Thomas Tuchel, I'd be very wary."
