[Video] Martin Tyler’s Man United bias exposed during commentary

Posted by

Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler seems to have a soft spot for Manchester United which was exposed following his contrasting reactions to Christian Benteke and Anthony Martial’s respective strikes.

Any football fan with an ounce of knowledge would recognise that Benteke’s strike was significantly better than Martial’s clumsy effort, yet Martin Tyler’s commentary certainly didn’t reflect that.

In a period of dominance for us at 2-0 down, Benteke pulled off a goal of the season contender to thump an overhead-kick past David De Gea who was left clutching at thin air.

However, Tyler’s reaction resembled that of a player scoring a tap-in with the goal gaping, especially when one considers his overreaction to Martial’s goal.

While the finish was neat, Manchester United’s new boy relied on a few ricochet’s and Martin Skrtel could’ve also done better to stop Martial before he advanced into the penalty area.

There are certainly more important issues at hand than analysing the voice of a Sky Sports commentator, but you can’t help but notice the obvious bias every time the Red Devils are shown live.
