Clubs, English Premier League, Liverpool, Manchester United, Story


Martin Atkinson sent off Steven Gerrard in March 2015.

Martin Atkinson will referee Liverpool’s upcoming match with Manchester United, the Premier League has announced.

Atkinson will oversee the Anfield encounter on Saturday afternoon and will be assisted by Lee Betts, Stephen Child and fourth official Jon Moss.

The official last refereed a Liverpool-United fixture in March 2015, when he sent off Steven Gerrard just 38 seconds after coming on as a half-time substitute in a 2-1 defeat for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

In total, Atkinson has officiated three fixtures between the two sides, with United winning all of them.

He has not been in charge of a Liverpool game this season, but did referee United’s 4-0 win over West Ham United on the opening weekend of the Premier League.
