Whilst there's plenty of talk surrounding referee Anthony Taylor at the moment following his appointment of being the man in the middle for the crunch game between Liverpool and Manchester United next Monday night, actually, the Wythenshawe-based official supports a side five divisions below the Premier League.
National North League side Altrincham, of course, is Taylor's club of choice, a little-known team situated just south of Manchester who play their home games at Moss Lane. 'Alty' currently occupy one of the three relegation places in their division.
And it appears Taylor isn't the only top flight referee who prefer the smaller clubs in the north-west, with both Mike Jones and Mike Dean also being supporters of two different National League clubs in the area.
So when you come away from watching a Premier League game obviously believing that a certain man in black had favoured the opposition more than your team then you'll maybe have to think again.
As it is, there are more Premier League referees that prefer the blood, sweat and toil of the Football League and below, which may surprise you.
Below is a list of the country's top officials and some of the teams they support, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Mark Clattenburg (County Durham): Newcastle
Mike Dean (Wirral): Tranmere
Kevin Friend (Bristol): Bristol City
Simon Hooper (Wiltshire): Swindon
Mike Jones (Chester): Chester
Robert Madley (Wakefield): Huddersfield
Andre Marriner (Birmingham): Aston Villa
Lee Mason (Bolton): Bolton
Jon Moss (Sunderland): Sunderland
Michael Oliver (Ashington): Newcastle
Craig Pawson (South Yorkshire): Sheffield United
Graham Scott (Oxford): Swindon
Keith Stroud (Dorset): Luton
Neil Swarbrick (Preston): Preston
Anthony Taylor (Wythenshawe): Altrincham
Paul Tierney (Wigan): Wigan
Roger East (Wiltshire): Unknown
The Big Clash
Both Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho's sides have had different seasons so far, with the former's team looking unbeatable at home so far following high-scoring Anfield victories against Leicester and Hull.
But United have looked good away from Old Trafford; winning three of their four matches on the road in the Premier League this campaign.
Back to Taylor, and it appears he is entitled to be in charge for the game, and here's why:
But what do you think - should he be in the middle for the clash between the two giants in the north-west?
