Peter Drury's commentary for Bukayo Saka's pressure penalty vs Liverpool will give you goosebumps

Peter Drury again proved he is the best commentator in the game with a spine-tingling description for Bukayo Saka's pressure penalty.

Gabriel Martinelli put the Gunners 1-0 up inside the first minute in a fast and furious start to proceedings, before Darwin Nunez levelled matters.

Saka benefitted from some strange defensive play from Trent Alexander-Arnold to put Arsenal in front, though substitute Roberto Firmino equalised for a second time early on in the second half.


But then after a controversial penalty was awarded after Thiago Alcantara made contact with Gabriel Jesus, Saka bagged the winner to move Arsenal back to the top of the Premier League.

And veteran commentator Drury produced utter gold while working for Premier League productions. He immediately set the scene by referring to Saka's costly miss in Euro 2020 final.

"This is one pressure penalty," Drury said.

"He has experienced pressure like this before like few others but he has suffered for that pressure.

"But now the Emirates braces itself for perhaps a pivotal kick of the football."

Drury is a master of his craft and when the referee blew his whistle and Saka converted, he came up clutch.

As the Emirates erupted, Drury commented: "Bukayo Saka, such poise, such noise."

There really is no-one like Drury when it comes to capturing big, dramatic moments.

He has a special turn of phrase and love for the English language, commentating with innate passion and colour.

Some of his most iconic moments include his 'Greek God in Rome' line for Kostas Manolas' header against Barcelona in the Champions League will live long in the memory, as well as his piece on Siphiwe Tshabalala's "goal for all of Africa" in the 2010 World Cup curtain-raiser.

Move over William Shakespeare, they need to start teaching kids about Peter Drury in school.
