The Reds will take on David Moyes’ side at Anfield on Monday as they look to carry on their winning streak failing to drop points in the Premier League since October. Now that it has been revealed who the referee will be for the match and who will be on VAR duty, this has led to some Liverpool fans getting worried about the match.
Oh dear oh dear.

What do we think?
It seems a bit harsh that the Liverpool fans are pre-judging the officials before the match has been played. With Jurgen Klopp’s side over 20 points ahead at the top of the Premier Leauge table, the fans will be hoping that there won’t be any slip-ups in their title charge.
