- Anthony Taylor will take charge of Liverpool v Manchester United
- The referee lives just six miles away from Old Trafford
- Former PGMOL chief Keith Hackett has questioned the appointment
- There’s no conflict of interest and Taylor is a true pro, says Poll
Anthony Taylor is a trusted member of the select group of referees and one it’s most senior officials.
His appointment to referee Monday evening’s Premier League clash between Liverpool and Manchester United should certainly not raise any eyebrows despite him living and working in the Manchester area.
Taylor has already taken charge of Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Southampton in the Premier League this season and refereed them three times last season and Liverpool four times.
