Noel Gallagher will once again dabble in football punditry as a guest on Match of the Day 2 this weekend, the BBC has announced.

The former Oasis star and Manchester City fan interviewed then City striker Mario Balotelli for Football Focus in 2012, and will appear on Sunday night's programme to discuss Tottenham v West Ham, Everton v Leicester and Southampton v Liverpool.

Gallagher, who is preparing to release his second solo album, will also front a feature on City's match against Newcastle, which takes places on Saturday evening.

It is rare for Match of the Day to feature pundits who are not ex-footballers, although West Ham fan Russell Brand appeared last season to promote Sport Relief and, back in 1994, Fantasy Football League presenters Frank Skinner and David Baddiel also took part.

The main question with Gallagher might be whether his usually strong language is as blue as City's shirts.
