Fans left confused as popular feature 'disappears' from Amazon's Premier League coverage

Amazon Prime's coverage of the Premier League has continued this evening with two matches - although a popular feature of the broadcast was missing during the first half.

Amazon are showing Everton's clash against Newcastle and the London derby between Tottenham and West Ham.

The coverage has gone down well among fans, with Amazon able to attract an all-star team of presenters, broadcasters and commentatators to cover the matches.

Another popular feature has been the introduction of a new graphic, which shows the amount of available substitutions each team has throughout the game.

While it may be a small feature, it is a little detail that has been appreciated by viewers, with clubs having three available windows (excluding half time) in which to make up to five changes.

But during the first half of Spurs' clash against West Ham, viewers spotted that the graphic was no more, with the five dashes above each side's name no longer visible.

While a small number of viewers reminisced over the feature, they were left confused when Clive Tyldesley mentioned it on the live broadcast.

And one supporter wrote: "Amazon mentioning their sub counter, then realising they hadn't turned it on."

The graphic did return for the second half of the Everton match, along with the Spurs match, although it had been spotted during the first half of Wolves vs Burnley earlier this week.

Spurs were able to go into half time 1-0 ahead against West Ham, with Cristian Romero returning from suspension to power in an early header.

Everton, meanwhile, went 2-0 ahead against Newcastle thanks to Dwight McNeil's second half strike and Abdoulaye Doucoure's low drive.

Should Sean Dyche's side hang on for victory, they will climb out of the relegation zone to go above Luton following their 10-point deduction by the Premier League.
