Video: Phil Neville is Absolutely Terrified By the Goodison Park Sprinklers

There were goals galore at Everton‘s Goodison Park this afternoon – but  for us, the highlight of the day came just before kick-off, when Phil Neville was left terrified by some sprinklers.

Neville was alongside co-pundit Jamie Redknapp as pat of Sky Sports’ coverage of the Premier League clash between the Toffees and Leicester City this afternoon, but it wasn’t long before Nev’s incisive analysis was stopped dead in its tracks – by a little bit of water.

You’d have thought having played several hundred matches as a player for Everton, Neville might be a bit more used to the sprinklers going off on the pitch from time to time, but just look at the sheer panic on his face here:

It’s OK, Phil – it’s just water. It’ll all be alright soon.

Both teams played out a fantastically entertaining game, with five goals in the first-half alone.

But Phil and his aquatic fear will definitely remain our highlight.
