Patrice Evra, Roy Keane and Micah Richards will all play a regular part in Sky’s coverage joining presenters David Jones and Kelly Cates and fellow pundits Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp.
“With fans currently unable to attend matches in person, it is imperative we provide the best possible TV and digital coverage to our audiences,” said Gary Hughes, Director of Football at Sky Sports.
“Confirming Patrice, Micah and Roy to add to our existing line-up of award-winning pundits is brilliant news and we will strive to take the game closer to fans than ever before with increased live action, highlights and analysis.”
