Tyler will once again have a microphone in his side as he commentates on Ange Postecoglou’s side taking on Fulham. 

The 78-year-old will be working for Premier League Productions, which provides worldwide feed from English top-flight games.

He is most well known for producing iconic commentary on some of the greatest Premier League, Champions League and World Cup moments in recent footballing history.

Many will know Tyler from the iconic ‘Agueroooooooooo’ moment when Sergio Aguero smashed home a late winning goal to win Manchester City the title in 2012. 

Tyler is now a coach with National League South side Dartford, but was spotted at Tottenham’s training ground this week. 

He enjoyed a warm embrace and conversation with boss Ange Postecoglou following the TV and written media press conference.

Spurs are currently unbeaten in the league this season, with a win tonight taking them back to the top of the table ahead of Man City.  

Peter Drury replaced Tyler as Sky Sports main commentator and has settled in well so far
