Liverpool: Fans delighted as David Coote is removed for Leicester City encounter

Liverpool: Fans delighted as David Coote is removed for Leicester City encounter - Liverpool News

Many Liverpool fans were pleased to hear that referee David Coote was removed from VAR duties for the Reds’ Premier League game against Leicester City this weekend.

Coote was the man in charge of VAR during the 2-2 draw against Everton last month, where Jordan Pickford escaped punishment after a high tackle on Virgil van Dijk, leaving him needing surgery on a serious knee injury.

Which Liverpool player was the last to reach 100 league games before Trent Alexander-Arnold?

After Liverpool contacted the Premier League to question the failure in scrutinising Pickford, no further action was taken as it was not deemed to be a red card offence at the time (via BBC Sport).

With little explanation, the Premier League themselves announced that there was a change to the officials’ line-up for Matchweek Nine, which will now see Andre Marriner make decisions on the proceedings at Anfield.

Were the Premier League right to remove David Coote from the Leicester game?
