Fans were loving many of the aspects of the Premier League coverage from Amazon Sport last night, seen as a 'breath of fresh air' from viewers, who have become accustomed to the monopoly of Sky Sports and BT Sport coverage.
Some of the main features which received praise was the ability to easily switch between matches, and the option to turn off commentary, although Alan Shearer was being lauded for his work in the commentary box with Amazon Prime.
The French duo of Thierry Henry and Patrice Evra also proved extremely popular, with their sharp banter and Evra's eccentrics.
However, arguably the highlight of the night was the pitch-side interviews of Brentford manager Thomas Frank and Chelsea manager Graham Potter.
While we have seen managers interviewed pitch-side on Sky Sports, Amazon had both managers interview each other, which made for unique and insightful sports coverage.

Thomas Frank first of all praised Graham Potter for his managerial journey, which lead to his high-profile move, replacing Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea.
He then asked him, what at first seemed a humorous question, "what do you make changes to your formation so many time," to which Potter provided an intelligent answer, and gave huge insight into how he wants his Chelsea team to play.
He discussed the need for players to be consistent, no matter the formation, and that certain elements should be visible regardless of how his side lines out.
Potter then queried Frank on the main differences between the Championship and the Premier League.
Frank talked about the difference in the pace of the Premier League, the sheer quality of the players, the increased danger of getting punished for your mistakes, and the modern aspect to the league in terms of tactics and formations.
The discussion below between Belgian manager Roberto Martinez and Bruno Fernandes, about the midfielder's role as a 10, also showed the need for more informed and knowledgable tactical discussions in Premier League coverage.
