Jon Moss has been appointed as the referee for the Premier League meeting of Wolves and Manchester United at Molineux next Monday, as noted by the @TalkingWolves Twitter channel yesterday.
Jon Moss will referee Wolves’ game versus Manchester United next Monday.

The 48-year-old was also involved in Wolves’ most recent match when, as the VAR official for Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Leicester, he advised match referee Andre Marriner to disallow Leander Dendocker’s goal as the ball struck Willy Boly’s arm in the build-up.
Moss took charge of three Wolves matches last season, two of which ended in victory for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men. He was the referee for their 2-1 victory over Chelsea last December and the 1-0 win over Fulham in their final home game of the season. He was also in charge of their 3-1 loss at Southampton in April. [via Soccerbase]
The VAR official for Monday’s game is Paul Tierney, who was involved in two Wolves matches in 2018/19, both in cup competitions.
He took charge of their Carabao Cup third round penalty shootout defeat to Leicester and the 2-1 FA Cup win over Liverpool in January. [via Soccerbase]
Despite both officials being involved in wins for Wolves against top six clubs last season, these supporters were unhappy with the appointment of Moss as referee for the visit of Manchester United next week:
Great, the most unfit ref ever now We’ve got VAR he’ll be even more economical with his movement
