Liverpool fans have expressed their love for Peter Drury after the legendary commentator delivered some of his finest verses when Mo Salah found the back of the net yesterday against Manchester City.
Salah's strike, which showed incredible speed, flair and power, was one of the best goals of the season and worthy of some classic commentary, which Drury brilliantly delivered.

"Salah... escaped Cancelo," he said. "Oh that's brilliant from Salah! And still... Salah! Oh sensational! Absolutely sensational! Stellar!
That is PlayStation football! It's ridiculous. You cannot do that without a joystick."
Liverpool fans were full of praise for Drury's words after the match.
"This man is a poet," one Red tweeted.
Peter Drury should write a verse in Psalms.

"Just love Drury," another said. "An absolute legend."
"Peter Drury is a vibe," a fellow Kopite commented.
This is not the first time Drury has received universal acclaim for his work behind the mic.
In 2018, he was commended for his commentary of Roma's stunning comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League, with one fan arguing that 'this commentary deserves the Ballon d'Or'.
"It is a Greek from Mount Olympus!" Drury exclaimed after Kostas Manolas put his side 3-0 up and thus ahead on away goals. "Who has come to the seven hills of Rome and pulled off a miracle."
Unfortunately for Liverpool, Drury still had time to deliver another exquisite narration in the last 15 minutes of yesterday's match, after Kevin de Bruyne fired home an equaliser with 9 minutes to play.
Chaces to take all three points fell for both teams, with Fabinho denied by a sensational Rodri block and Gabriel Jesus cornered well by Andy Robertson.
The result maintains Jurgen Klopp's side's unbeaten start to the new season and leaves them in 2nd place, a point and position ahead of Pep Guardiola's champions.
