Man United vs Newcastle: This no-Nonsense Whistle Blower Officially Confirmed to be the Centre Ref.

The English Premier League action returns for match week 4 after a two week internationals break. Top English clubs have had their flags raised high in the world cup qualifiers as most players from the Premier League side performed incredibly. Particularly, Man United and Chelsea stars were unstoppable.

Manchester United will host Newcastle United at Old Trafford on 11th Saturday afternoon. The two teams have had totally different results in the first two weeks. The Red Devils have won two battles (Wolverhampton and Leeds) and one of the matches against Southampton was leveled. Newcastle lost two ( against Astonvilla and Westham) while they picked a point from Southampton after a 2-2 draw.

It is officially confirmed that referee Antony Taylor will be holding the whistle for the Red Devils match this weekend. Definitely, every fan is scared of this name especially after the 42 years Manchester born man punished Chelsea by sending Reece James off by a red card against Liverpool.

Taylor stats against United: In the last 8 Man United battles that Taylor has reffed, the Red Devils lost only 2 and won the rest. The two clubs that beat United were Tottenham (6-2) and Liverpool (4-2). This is really an encouraging fact for Man United fans. In the Spurs loss, United's striker Antony Martial was red carded at the 17th minute of the first half.

Taylor's 2021/22 facts: He has been in charge of three matches so far. He presided over Tottenham win over Man City on Week 1, Brighton win over Watford in week 2, and a dramatic week 3 draw between Chelsea and Liverpool.

Definitely, Tailor is ever harsh and very easy to give bookings. It is a great challenge to both Manchester and Newcastle United players to be very careful or Taylor's unforgiving whistle will ruin their return.

What do you think of Antony Taylor? Is he equal to this task ahead? Could it be time for Chelsea fans to laugh at Man United lovers as a payback of last week's criticisms? We silently wait and see, but truth be told, Taylor can frustrate anyone at anytime.
