Martin Atkinson will referee the Merseyside Derby between Everton and Liverpool on Monday. He will be supported by Anthony Taylor (VAR).
The 48-year-old referee has a long history with Everton supporters after showing Jack Rodwell a red card for a tackle on Luis Suarez in the same fixtures in 2011.
Atkinson further enraged Everton after allowing Manchester City’s goal to stand in the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg at the Etihad in 2016.
Everton fans are not happy with this appointment. Here are some reactions from social media.
