A lot of West Ham fans are not happy with the latest news as the Premier League announced which officials would be in charge of each game following the return of football this week.
West Ham entertain Wolves on Saturday and it is a crucial game for the Irons as they are fighting to stay in the division. They sit 16th at the moment but are currently level with Bournemouth who are in the relegation zone, per BBC Sport.
Anthony Taylor has been appointed as the man in the middle and many West Ham supporters are not happy with this news
It is surprising that Hammers fans are disgruntled with Anthony Taylor being referee as he has a 66.7% win percentage with the club this season, via WhoScored.
At the London Stadium when he has been the man in the middle, West Ham have a 100% win percentage but there have been moments in the past when he has caused the East London fan base to be angry and they clearly haven’t forgotten it.
Here is what these Hammers fans said following the news:

Anthony “rescinded red card” Taylor. Sorry state of affairs when he’s one of the top refs in your country.
