Ian Wright spared no thought for Alan Shearer – who was sat right next to him – as he wildly celebrated Arsenal's 2-0 victory at Newcastle.
The pundits were working together as their beloved sides clashed in the Premier League on Sunday (May 7) afternoon. And Shearer was probably regretting taking the booking as the Gunners got the better of the Magpies.
Wright's reactions to their two goals, a first-half strike from Martin Odegaard and a second-half own goal from Fabian Schar, were shown after the match. While he jumped with joy, Shearer had a face like thunder.

Able to see the funny side later in the broadcast, the former Newcastle striker and manager joked: "Were you happy with that performance?"
Wright replied: "To be honest Al, like I say it was a great game, especially the first goal. But listening to people saying about the experienced players have not turned up in games, not done well since we got knocked out of Europe.
"Simply because of a few hiccupy results at the time of a season when people are putting them under pressure.

"I think that kind of result, going to St James' Park at this stage of the season against a Newcastle side in the best form of the season at the right time for them, and beating them, is an unbelievable result."
Wright's emotions were certainly contrasting to Shearer's, who got into a heated exchange will colleague and former Prem ref Dermot Gallagher as they discussed Newcastle's early overturned penalty.
And after Wright uploaded a video of his celebrations to Twitter, Shearer quoted it with a middle finger emoji and a laughing face.
