Andy Madley was selected the referee for Liverpool’s Premier League match versus Manchester United, despite being involved in a contentious call earlier this season at Anfield
On Sunday afternoon, Liverpool will visit arch rivals Manchester United in the Premier League, looking to cut the gap on their top-four opponents.
This season, the teams have switched roles, with United competing for the league title and Liverpool fighting to qualify for the Champions League.
Klopp’s team did, however, keep their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Premier League on Wednesday, defeating Wolves 2-0, indicating that they are on the verge of a turnaround in form.
Yet, they will face a United team that is fired up after winning their first title in six years.
Madley will officiate the match between Liverpool and Manchester United.
Madley has been chosen as the referee for Liverpool’s game versus Manchester United.
It will be his fourth Liverpool match of the season, and he has also watched one United match.
Indeed, Madley officiated the Merseyside club’s 2-2 FA Cup third-round clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
However, the game was marred by late VAR controversy after Wolves scored in the 82nd minute.
Toti Gomes scored from close range, causing ecstatic emotions in the away end, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside.
Despite the fact that there was no camera view available, the on-field referee’s decision to deny Toti’s goal was upheld following a lengthy VAR check.
