Liverpool: Fans react to referee appointment for Chelsea encounter

Liverpool: Fans react to referee appointment for Chelsea encounter - Liverpool News

Many Liverpool fans are not impressed with who has been appointed to take charge of Thursday’s crunch clash against Chelsea.

The Premier League have announced that Craig Pawson will be the referee for the game at Anfield and with Paul Tierney as the VAR official.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have won just once from their last five encounters, in a slump that saw the German tactician admit that their title charge was over for this season.

Last time out, they managed to comfortably beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane though, with a 2-0 win, with Curtis Jones and a deflected Roberto Firmino strike sealing the deal. Victory on Thursday would see them jump Chelsea and West Ham into the top four, although the Hammers will have a game in hand.

But after being on the end of several controversial VAR decisions this season, supporters were not optimistic about the Premier League’s decision and feared that more judgments may be given against their team.
