Some Liverpool supporters are angry that Craig Pawson will take charge of the Reds’ Premier League clash with Wolves.
The champions make the trip to Molineux on Monday evening, looking to get back to winning ways in the league, following their dismal 1-0 defeat at home to Fulham last weekend.
If Jurgen Klopp’s men are to have any chance of getting back into the top four battle this season, victory will be paramount on Monday.
It has been announced that Pawson will take charge of the game – Andy Madley will be on the dreaded VAR duty – with both Jurgen Klopp and Nuno Espirito Santo no doubt keen for controversy to be avoided.
Is Klopp to blame for Liverpool's woes?
Pawson was actually the referee for the corresponding fixture at Anfield back in December, with Liverpool cruising to a 4-0 victory and looking on course to defend their league title at that point.
Liverpool fans react to Pawson appointment
Here’s how Reds supporters reacted to the news on Twitter, with negativity the order of the day.
“I‘m hurt more by who the referee is. He never gives us anything in home games let alone away games.”
“Handy 1 for Wolves”
“Good job I don’t care anymore”
“Did a great job last time giving them a pen for Mane’s legit clearance albeit overturned. He’s hopeless.“
“Craig and Martin just don’t like us, also I think we are also victimized by the VAR decisions.”
“Horrible ref, hate him, the mail wrote, there were 13 50/50 decisions, he gave all 13 against (us)”
