Tottenham vs Man Utd referee confirmed by Premier League, Erik ten Hag won't be happy

The Premier League have confirmed the officials for next week's crucial Premier League match between Tottenham and Manchester United.

United travel to face Spurs in north London on April 27 - just days after taking on Brighton in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

It is a hugely important match for both sides in the race for Champions League football next season.

United are currently third in the Premier League but cannot afford any slip-ups, with several teams close behind.


Newcastle are three points back in fourth, with Tottenham a further three points behind in fifth - having played one game more than the Red Devils.

The Premier League have now confirmed that Anthony Taylor will referee the match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

He will be assisted by Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn, with Thomas Bramall the fourth official.

Simon Hooper will be on VAR duties and will be assisted by Steven Meredith.



Ten Hag's previous criticism of Taylor

The appointment of Taylor as referee could frustrate United manager Erik ten Hag, who was critical of the official's performance during the goalless draw against Southampton last month.

United were forced to play the majority of the game with ten-men after Casemiro received a straight red card for a challenge on Carlos Alcaraz.


It resulted in the Brazilian serving a four-match suspension as it was his second red card of the season.

"Casemiro played over 500 games in Europe and he never had one [straight] red card," Ten Hag said after the match.

"And now, in 20 games in the Premier League he has red cards. We will deal with [his suspension for four games]. The issue is that this game was influenced by the referee."

Ten Hag also expressed his frustration that United were not awarded a penalty when Saints defender Armel Bella-Kotchap appeared to handle the ball in his own area.


"Oh definitely [the penalty should've been awarded]. There is no doubt," added Ten Hag.

"I don't understand why the VAR is not interrupting because they did previously."
