Liverpool once again extended their advantage at the Premier League summit to 22 points following a hard-fought 3-2 victory against West Ham United at Anfield on Monday night – and some Reds supporters have reacted to Peter Drury’s superb commentary following Sadio Mane’s winning goal.
Jurgen Klopp’s team made it Liverpool 21 starigt home Premier League victories, equalling the English top-flight record for consecutive home wins. Also, the Reds’ 26th triumph of the season matched the English top-flight record of 18 successive wins, set by Manchester City from August to December 2017, with the champions-elect last dropping points in a 1-1 draw with Manchester United in October.
Liverpool took an early lead when Georginio Wijnaldum converted from Alexander-Arnold’s inch-perfect cross. David Moyes’ side showed great character to hit back through Issa Diop’s header and even threatened to end the Reds’ 34-month unbeaten Anfield league run when substitute Pablo Fornals swept West Ham into the lead nine minutes after the break.
However, the European champions fought back after Fabianski inexplicably allowed Mohamed Salah’s shot to squirm through his legs in the 68th minute before Sadio Mane settled the contest nine minutes from time Alexander-Arnold’s lofted the ball found the Senegalese ace.
Despite the victory, many Liverpool supporters were still left far from impressed with Martin Tyler’s Sky Sports commentary of the Anfield affair.
Some Kopites even took to Twitter to showcase their desire to see Peter Drury upgraded in the Sky Sports hot-seat following an extraordinary example of commentary that left supporters drooling for the former ITV Sport veteran’s services.
Here is a selection of Tweets calling for Drury to be the go-to-man when commentating on the Reds…
Best commentator around, should definitely be on sky sports imo

Sky charging a fortune, want the best pundits yet continue to tolerate the dullest commentator around.
