Fans stunned after hearing who was on Sky Sports’ commentary for Brighton vs Tottenham

Fans were left stunned after hearing who was on Sky Sports’ commentary for their highlights of Brighton vs. Tottenham.

Brighton beat Spurs 4-2 in a thrilling Premier League clash at the Amex Stadium on Thursday.

The hosts secured a four-goal lead after Jack Hinshelwood, Joao Pedro (x2) and Pervis Estupinan got on the score-sheet.

The visitors pulled two goals back as Alejo Veliz and Ben Davies struck late on.
It wasn’t just the action on the pitch that stunned fans online as people couldn’t believe who was on commentary duty for Sky Sports.

After the match, Sky Sports released highlights for the fixture which was aired live by Amazon Prime.

And Martin Tyler was on commentary for Sky Sports, leaving fans in disbelief.

One X user wrote: “Why am i hearing Martin Tyler on Sky Sports Premier League highlights for the Spurs vs Brighton game?”

A second tweeted: “For some reason here in the U.S. Martin Tyler is commentating this game. Very weird.”

A third added: “Martin Tyler on Sky Sports highlights,” accompanied with the infamous Ian Wright meme.

The legendary commentator left the company following 33 years of service back in June, with Peter Drury replacing him.

But the reason why the 78-year-old was on commentary for Sky Sports despite his departure is because he still works for the Premier League.

That means he still commentates for the World Feed for the likes of SuperSport and HubPremier.

Peacock also uses the World Feed, unless they appoint Jon Champion or Peter Drury for the bigger fixtures.

Tyler recently spoke about his Sky Sports exit as he claimed he was axed from his role rather than him stepping down.

“I didn’t step down, I was stepped down,” he told The Sun.

“I haven’t retired. I’m very grateful to some channels who have decided that I’ve still got something to contribute.”

Tyler added: “Please don’t think there’s any bitterness about Sky at all, they gave me a wonderful run.”
