Liverpool fans react to announcement that Martin Atkinson will referee their game with Tottenham

The Reds travel to north London seeking to keep their unbeaten league run going.

Liverpool will travel to Tottenham on Saturday seeking to maintain their unbeaten run in the Premier League.

The Reds may well be beginning to eye up the Invincibles’ record of 49 games unbeaten and have dropped just two league points all season.

Martin Atkinson has been appointed as referee for the crunch clash with Jose Mourinho’s men, as confirmed on the Premier League’s official website.

These things may seem inconsequential, but judging from the reaction of Liverpool fans on Twitter, it matters a great deal.

Atkinson was the referee when Liverpool dropped their only league points of the season, the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United.

On that occasion, the Reds clearly felt that Marcus Rashford’s opening goal should have been disallowed for a foul on Divock Origi in the buildup.

There were plenty of fans online panicking about the appointment, not at all pleased to see Atkinson assigned the game against Jose Mourinho’s side.

Liverpool won the reverse fixture at Anfield 2-1 but there are some supporters to seem to feel that their hopes of the league double have been affected by Atkinson’s appointment.
