Liverpool: Fans relieved that Craig Pawson will take charge of Manchester United clash

Liverpool fans have been breathing sighs of relief after it was announced that Craig Pawson will take charge of their crunch clash with Manchester United on Sunday.

The Red Devils are the only team to take points off Jurgen Klopp’s side this season after a 1-1 draw in the earlier fixture at Old Trafford. Adam Lallana cancelled out Marcus Rashford’s first-half opener to ensure that the shares were spoiled on the other end of the M62. Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League and unbeaten during the current campaign, 14 points clear ahead of Manchester City in 2nd place.

The Liverpool Echo’s Paul Gorst announced that Pawson would be in charge for the game, much to the relief of some fans. This is due to their dislike of official Martin Atkinson after he was the VAR official at Villa Park earlier in the season that disallowed Roberto Firmino’s goal during their 2-1 win. The goal was originally ruled out by the assistant referee. On closer inspection, Atkinson stuck with the original choice made due to Firmino’s armpit being in an offside position, as per the Liverpool Echo.
