Tottenham fans are not looking forward to Martin Atkinson officiating their game against Everton this afternoon, as he came under stick for his performance during Liverpool's win at Aston Villa.
Atkinson, who will be in the middle during Spurs' clash at Everton, was on VAR duties during Liverpool's stoppage-time win at Aston Villa.
In the first half, Roberto Firmino thought that he had levelled the scores for his side, but Atkinson, who was sat in the VAR room, adjudged that Firmino's armpit was offside as the goal didn't stand.
Some Tottenham fans highlighted that as they also highlighted his recent performances during Spurs games, as they clearly don't rate him as a referee.
Whether they are in the middle or sat in the VAR room, referee's have been coming under some serious stick this season, as there seems to be no logic to officiating.
It seems as though VAR, or the decisions made by those using that system seem to cause controversy every week and Tottenham fans are hopeful that doesn't happen at Goodison Park.
Both Everton and Spurs haven't been at their best this season and the last thing the duo need is for things to go against them.
Both teams are sitting in the bottom half of the Premier League table and if Marco Silva's side can clinch all three points then they will move from 17th place up to 13th.
Here is a selection of Spurs fans reacting to Atkinson set to officiate Everton game:

Jesus Christ is put a million pounds in Everton if I had some dough Atkinson is one of the worst referees we've ever produced.— Lionel Curie (@currybags) November 2, 2019
Kick someone to shit no free kick do the same back booked, slight push is a penalty but tread on someone's ankle play on. Usually all against us
