Liverpool: Fans annoyed that Martin Atkinson will take charge of Brighton game - Liverpool

Atkinson took charge of the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford earlier in the season where he controversially disallowed a goal from Liverpool’s Sadio Mane for handball. He also did not give a foul on Divock Origi in the build up to Marcus Rashford’s opener for Manchester United.

The other incident was when he was working on the newly-introduced VAR during the 2-1 win against Aston Villa. He agreed with the assistant referee on an incorrect offside call and Sky Sports pundit Chris Kamara proved that the lines that Atkinson drew using the software were not straight.

Supporters were not impressed with the news and made their feelings clear about Atkinson on social media.
