'Yesssss', 'win incoming': Some Arsenal fans hail news ahead of Burnley clash
Some Arsenal fans have welcomed the news that referee Anthony Taylor will officiate their upcoming Premier League game.
The Gunners head to Burnley on Saturday afternoon hoping to make it two league wins in a row.
Arsenal began the season poorly, losing three on the trot without scoring once.
The stakes were high against Norwich last week, but Mikel Arteta’s charges ran out 1-0 winners.
Arsenal now face the Clarets, a very physical side bound to give the Gunners a tough game.
On Tuesday, the Premier League announced the refereeing appointments for matchday five.
Taylor is the referee for the Arsenal game, with Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn as assistants.
John Brooks is the fourth official, while Lee Mason takes charge of VAR, with Matthew Wilkes assisting him.
Taylor refereed the FA Cup finals in 2017 and 2020, both of which saw Arsenal face Chelsea, and with the Gunners winning each time.
And many Arsenal fans feel Taylor has usually been fair with them, so a few praised the appointment on Twitter:
One of the few that has not consistently shown hate for Arsenal. Let's hope he has not been corrupted by others.— Harrison (@poshisi1) September 14, 2021

Referee Anthony Taylor
A referee who sent of a player who he thought he already booked
A ref who likes to send of players who tends to be dirty against Arsenal players
Burnley the most physical and horrible team to play against so this should be good 😂😂
Thank God— Mr Matti (@iam_ToroJR) September 14, 2021
