Referee appointment for Liverpool v Man Utd criticized….

Anthony Taylor

Former referee’s chief Keith Hackett has criticised the appointment of Manchester-based referee Anthony Taylor for Monday’s meeting of Manchester United and Liverpool. Taylor lives six miles from Old Trafford, which Hackett believes could lead to allegations of partiality. “No-one is questioning his integrity,” Hackett said. “But what if something goes wrong? It would be intolerable.” Taylor has no United ties and supports National League North side Altrincham.
