A lot of Leeds United fans have flocked to a post from Adam Pope in which he has relayed the news that Anthony Taylor will be in charge for Liverpool’s visit to Elland Road next Monday.

Starting with an easy one who is Leeds United's top Premier League goalscorer this season?

The BBC man confirms that this will be Taylor’s fifth game in charge of the Whites this season, and this news has drawn the attention of these unhappy Leeds fans, who are also not pleased to see Mike Dean on VAR duty.

The biggest problem is Mike Dean is on VAR so expect a couple of brutal decisions in favour of

Taylor was the referee for Leeds’ home win over Fulham, the away win over Newcastle United, the 0-0 draw at home with Arsenal and the 6-2 thrashing at Old Trafford and this post continued to draw in Leeds fans who had their say.

We’ve had a horrible run of officials lately….”

@tobtipp

Mike Dean as VAR….. Oh Dear”

@lewbo0

What a terrible ref, and to make matters worse Mike Dean on VAR , what could go wrong?”

So, Leeds have a decent record with Taylor as the referee, and they will be hoping that continues when Jurgen Klopp’s side travel to Elland Road.

The reverse fixture was the season’s opening game and was a thrilling game of football that ended 4-3 in Liverpool’s favour, so hopefully, there will be similar excitement on Monday.
