Liverpool fans are far from happy with the news that Anthony Taylor will referee their match at Manchester United this weekend.
The Reds have had a good start to the season under Jurgen Klopp. They have not yet lost a game in the Premier League after eight outings and sit second in the table behind Chelsea (Sky Sports), while they also have nine points from a possible nine in the Champions League.
They face a huge match against the Red Devils on Sunday at Old Trafford. United, of course, are Liverpool’s fiercest rivals, which adds an extra spice to proceedings.
It has now been revealed that Taylor will be in the middle (via The Manchester Evening News), something which has not pleased the Liverpool fans given he is from Altrincham, which is in Greater Manchester.
Will Liverpool beat United?
The news was shared on Twitter by @LFCTransferRoom, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Taylor news below
“Absolute joke that this is allowed to happen.”
“someone is taking back handers”
“Of course he is”
“Oh what a surprise. The ‘Altrincham’ fan refereeing another Manchester game. He could walk to OT for that one!!!”
“Everything to save them and Ole if they lose badly to us Sunday then it’s Ole out and the big guys don’t want that.”
“Surely they would put anyone else but a referee from Any where near Manchester or Liverpool ?? Sounds and looks like a little bit of corruption going on here ? Just saying”
