West Ham defender can't get the new Liverpool song out of his head

It's been a whirlwind few days for Irish comedian Richy Sheehy.

The catchiest remix you're ever likely to hear entered our lives earlier this week when Sheehy's character Kevin Murphy brought his own version of The Archies’ Sugar, Sugar to the internet.

Claiming to be the biggest Liverpool fan in the county of Cork, Murphy paid tribute to the Reds' Fab Four of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho (who has since moved to Barcelona).

The song quickly garnered global attention, Sheehy was soon inundated with interview requests and he even appeared on Sky Sports' Soccer AM on Saturday morning to provide a live rendition.

We imagine the chorus will be belted out a few times when Jurgen Klopp's side host Manchester City on Sunday but it's not just Liverpool fans who have fallen in love with the song.

West Ham defender James Collins has, just like the rest of us, clearly had it stuck in his head all week as he arrived at John Smith's Stadium this weekend in full voice.

And if he was in a good mood before the Premier League clash with Huddersfield, he'll be even happier after the Hammers claimed a 4-1 victory on the road.
