It seems almost too crazy to believe that Liverpool are genuinely within touching distance of the Premier League trophy, yet the latest news for their upcoming clash against Everton could put a dampener on their title parade.

The Premier League announced earlier today that Martin Atkinson will referee Monday night’s Merseyside Derby, the fourth time the official will take charge of a Premier Leauge game involving Liverpool, and for plenty of Reds supporters on social media, this was bad news.

Will Liverpool win the league at Goodison Park?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Atkinson was the man on the pitch during Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Manchester United earlier in the season where Sadio Mane had a goal ruled off for a soft handball, whilst the Red Devils were awarded the lead despite a blatant foul taking place in the build-up.

Liverpool supporters aren’t too keen on the Dewsbury-born official, and plenty took to Twitter to rage about the news that Atkinson had been aside to Monday night’s derby, with lots of fans predicting that the referee will ruin the Reds’ big night…

The Reds need just three wins to seal the Premier League title for the first time in their club history.
