The Egypt forward converted a penalty early in the second half and soon followed it up with a superb solo effort to put Liverpool 3-0 ahead before Lucas Torreira’s late consolation goal for the Gunners. [via Sky Sports]

Tyler, who was commentating on the match for Sky Sports, didn’t discernibly raise his voice after the Liverpool forward finished off the move, even if he did use the words “superb Salah” and “sensational” in the immediate aftermath of the goal. [via Sky Sports Football on YouTube]
The commentator angered some Reds supporters in 2015 when he exclaimed “Oh yes” in response to Anthony Martial’s goal on his Manchester United debut against Liverpool, as reported by Manchester Evening News.
Over the weekend, these Liverpool fans on Twitter were unimpressed with a perceived lack of reaction from Tyler to Salah’s second goal against Arsenal:

why is he still allowed to commentate on LFC games. he clearly doesn’t enjoy it and we don’t enjoy listening to it

His commentaries are so depressing

The most overrated commentator ever. Commentates on a game like David Attenbourough

After they scored in the 85th min, he got more excited about that goal which was a consolation then any of our goals. Then after that despite us having a 2 goal lead and being comfortable said “the Kop are now nervous”.

Needs to be taken off ALL Liverpool games. His anti Liverpool Bias is undeniable. When his love pogba makes a 5 yard pass he celebrates it like a lotto win. When we score you'd swear we'd committed war atrocities.
