There should be no controversy in the buildup as the officials for Crystal Palace vs. Liverpool are confirmed, with a low-profile refereeing group appointed.
An early kickoff, the fixture will pit title challengers against mid-table, with Roy Hodgson’s side in consistently inconsistent form so far.
The Reds are yet to suffer defeat in the previous 11, though his last was the 1-1 draw at Luton at the start of November.
Harry Lennard and Nick Hopton will run the line while Tom Bramall is fourth official, and in the VAR booth is John Brooks supported by Adam Nunn.
The 40-year-old has never sent a Liverpool player off and only shown the Reds 11 yellows in 11 games – however, nor has he awarded Jurgen Klopp‘s side a penalty.
