Amazon Prime Sport were left red-faced on Wednesday night as their coverage of Liverpool v Spurs on UK television crashed to leave spectators fuming.

Coverage of the opening few minutes of the game was notable for the the muted microphone of co-commentator Ally McCoist, with fans taking to Twitter to question how 2,000 fans had drowned out the TV audio.

Things then got worse as the match went off air and did not return for the entire first half for many viewers.

Premier League chiefs agreed a deal for Amazon Prime Sport to show two rounds of Premier League matches for this season, with Liverpool's top of the table clash against Tottenham the highlight of their first batch of games.

Yet their headline game was not available to access as a host of frustrated viewers turned to Twitter to vent their annoyance.

The dip in coverage came before Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for Liverpool and viewers also missed Son Heung-min's equaliser for Spurs.

The other games being broadcast on Amazon Prime Sport stayed online, with the streaming resuming in the second half.
