When Liverpool get going, they really are a special team.

In midweek, Jurgen Klopp's men struggled to break down a resilient West Brom at Anfield but against Bournemouth, the Reds looked unstoppable.

Going forward, only Manchester City can say they possess more attacking power, with Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah torturing the Cherries backline.

Klopp's rotational decision to drop Sadio Mane literally had no effect as Liverpool cruised to victory on the south coast.

Fans and even supporters of rival clubs were congratulating the Reds but there was one man who didn't sound too pleased with their display; Sky Sports commentator, Martin Tyler.

On Twitter, fans of Liverpool noticed just how moody and bored he sounded whenever they scored or did anything good.

Just have a look at the reaction below.


Now, if we have a look at the two moments in question, you can certainly see where people are coming from.

Coutinho's goal opened the scoring and if you listen to the commentary by Tyler below, he sounds very unimpressed.


Surely, given how good the goal from the Brazilian was, the commentator should get a little bit more excited?

Then, if we watch Defoe's chance which would have made it 2-1, we see a much different side to the Sky Sports man.


You can hear the anguish in his voice as the Cherries blew their biggest chance to mount a comeback.

Now, this is not the first time that Tyler has been accused of disliking Liverpool and he was badly caught out during a match against Manchester United in 2015.

Christian Benteke scored a stunner, for which he stays pretty much silent and then when Anthony Martial scored on his debut, you'd swear he was one of United's biggest fans.


Maybe in the future, Tyler shouldn't be allowed on Liverpool games, otherwise, the complaints may start coming thick and fast.
