Remember this? Martin Atkinson doesn’t, after he missed his challenge against former Reds striker Luis Suarez…
Liverpool fans have reacted angrily to the news that Martin Atkinson has been appointed as the referee for our crucial Premier League clash against Manchester United on Sunday.
The official does not enjoy the best of reputations among the Anfield faithful, having failed to award Everton forward Kevin Mirallas with even a yellow card, after this challenge against former Reds striker Luis Suarez:
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news…
Martin Atkinson who Reffed the last meeting with Man U gets this Sundays game. Hopefully he’s learned the offside rule or brings S Massey.

Martin Atkinson ref for LFC game. Not the greatest in #MUFC games but we have to build on yesterdays performance, not worry about the ref
