Martin Tyler caused a social media frenzy during Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Liverpool – after the Sky Sports commentator could not contain his excitement as Anthony Martial netted the Red Devils’ third goal at Old Trafford.

Deadline day signing Martial, a second-half substitute during the Premier League clash, put the result beyond doubt when he coolly slotted home late on.

Tyler reacted to the goal by shouting “Yesss!” as the Red Devils celebrated the impressive strike.

His enthusiastic reaction was duly noted by fans up and down the country – and here are some of the best reactions to the somewhat unorthodox commentary on social media.

After a goalless and uninspiring first half, United took the lead when Daley Blind curled home from a free kick after being set up by Juan Mata.

Ander Herrera made it 2-0 from the penalty spot after the Spaniard was brought down by Joe Gomez in the box.

Christian Benteke then pulled a goal back for Brendan Rodgers’ men late on with a superb overhead kick to set up a tense finale.

However, substitute Martial put the game beyond doubt when he surged into the box and slotted home a cool finish to wrap up the three points.
