Later, Sky’s Monday Night Football sees a really compelling match-up. Yes, tonight we’ll really get an insight into the ongoing practicality of Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher sharing a studio. Neville has managed, in no time flat, to establish himself as one of the best sports pundits in living memory – could the presence of a spiky Scouser inspire him to still greater heights? On the pitch, it’s the small matter of Manchester United v Chelsea. It doesn’t get any bigger than this, as Andy Gray will no doubt be yelling at his telly.
Polo Bar Kensington
A neat bar within the four-star Rydges hotel in Kensington, just a short walk from the V&A, Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. The modest space is decorated with dark wood and wine-red crushed velvet seating. A big screen telly shows all the major sporting events, which can be paired with a pint of Boddingtons, Stella, Guinness or Becks – all of which are on tap – or a snack from the bar. There's also an open fire to watch if the sport doesn't take your fancy.
Venue says: “Happy hour daily, 6-8pm, with 50% off house beer, wines and spirits! See website for all specials.”
