REVEALED: A Premier League legend is set to join Jamie Carragher in the hot seat on Monday Night Football as Gary O’Neil’s Wolves look to secure back-to-back Premier League wins against Fulham

A Premier League legend will join Jamie Carragher on Monday Night Football (MNF) as Fulham host Wolves at Craven Cottage this evening.

Gary O’Neil’s side come into this match on the back of a huge win against Tottenham before the international break. He defeated Ange Postecoglou’s side 2–1 at Molineux to secure their fourth win of the season, moving them 12th in the table.

Fulham, meanwhile, have suffered back-to-back defeats in their last two Premier League games after failing to win in their last four games in the league. After struggling to revive last season’s form, Marco Silva’s side need a win at home on Monday to move them up the table and move away from the relegation places.

The match will be shown live on MNF, with Sky Sports set to welcome former Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg as a special guest in place of Gary Neville.

The Swedish ex-pro, who enjoyed a legendary career at Arsenal and won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups, will appear on the show alongside Jamie Carragher and David Jones.

He was also part of Arsenal’s unbeaten ‘Invincibles’ season, making thirty appearances during that campaign.

It comes after his former side Arsenal topped the Premier League on Saturday after Mikel Arteta’s side beat Brentford 3-0 at the GTech Community Stadium.

Ljungberg, who joined Arsenal in 1998 before leaving the club for London rivals West Ham, has scored 72 goals in 328 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners.

After retiring in 2015 after a spell in the MLS, a six-month spell at Celtic and four months playing for Mumbai City, Ljungberg moved into coaching, working as a manager for Arsenal’s youth teams.

He would be appointed assistant manager in 2019, before taking on the position of interim manager between Unai Emery’s departure and Arteta’s arrival at the club in 2019.

Although the Spaniard has transformed his team immensely since taking charge, Ljungberg, who took charge for six games and suffered two defeats and one win in that time, will be a great guest to give his thoughts on how the Premier League season expires.

After hanging up his boots, he started working as Arsenal’s assistant coach and took charge of the side when Unai Emery was sacked in 2019.

After Arteta took over, Ljungberg took up a coaching position on the Spaniard’s staff, but ultimately decided it was best for him to leave and seek a new position elsewhere.

Speaking about his decision to leave the club, he told Sky Sports: ‘I felt I was ready to manage myself and be able to do that. I felt I had to leave and stand on my own two feet.

“It wasn’t an easy decision, but I had to do it for my career.”

He hasn’t taken on another coaching position since, but tonight, in addition to previewing Wolves’ match against Fulham, he can answer questions from Carragher about Aaron Ramsdale’s future at Arsenal, Kai Havertz’s goal and Arteta’s recent VAR rants.

Sports world mourns loss of ‘lively, witty man who was a pleasure to play for’

Gary Neville

An extremely sad day. One of my biggest regrets is that he didn’t continue as England manager. He had a great character and was on to something: he almost predicted the outcome of games and changed the system. I have no doubt that this was the most technically gifted and tactically aware coach England has produced.

Terry Venables will be remembered as an England fan. He will be remembered nationally for bringing those great times to Euro 96. He was a pleasure to play for.

Ange Postecoglou

If you ask for anyone who embodies everything this football club (Tottenham) always wanted to be, it’s Terry. It wasn’t just about the way he led or coached, but also about the person he was. He also influenced Australia as manager of the national team; he almost took us to the World Cup (1998). The biggest proof is that everyone I have ever met who has worked with him will say he is by far the best coach, manager and tactician they have ever come across.

Gareth Southgate

Playing for Terry Venables it quickly became clear that he was an excellent coach and manager. Tactically excellent, he had a great manner and could deal with everyone from the youngest player to the biggest star. He was open-minded, forward-thinking and created a brilliant environment with England that allowed his players to experience one of the most memorable tournaments in England’s history. A brilliant man who made people feel special.

Jamie Redknapp

Working with you every day was an educational experience. Euro 96 was one of the best times of my life, thank you for believing in me and giving me my England debut. I owe you so much.

David Beckham

I met Terry at Barcelona and while training at Tottenham at the age of 9. He was one of our greatest English managers and loved by players and fans.

Paul Gascoigne

What a sad day, cheers boss xxxx.

Gary Lineker

Destroyed. The best, most innovative coach for whom I had the privilege and pleasure to play. He was lively, charming, witty and a friend. He will be greatly missed.

Alan Scheerder

Extremely sad news. RIP boss. I owe you so much. You were great.

Stan Collymore

Lively, funny, a super coach, a man who lived life to the fullest.

Cliff Jones

Sad to hear of the passing of teammate and friend Terry Venables. A man with many talents.

Frank Bruno

I remember how he made all of England believe we could win Euro 96. A sad, sad loss.
