Man City referee, Trent’s position & Ouedraogo blow – Latest LFC News

Tuesday brought us news of the officials for our big clash this weekend, as well as an insightful interview with one of our midfielders.

Chris Kavanagh has been named as the referee for Saturday’s top-of-the-table clash with Man City, but you’ll be pleased to know that our record with him isn’t too shabby!

The Reds have won 13 of the 15 games the official has taken charge of dating back to 2018, losing just two.

Liverpool are on a run of six straight wins with Kavanagh in the middle, but he has never refereed a game between us and either of the two Manchester clubs.

He is, of course, from the Greater Manchester region. But aren’t all referees these days?

Liam Gallagher is set to act as fourth official, but that is yet to have been confirmed by the Premier League. Seriously though, Stuart Attwell is the VAR.
