Man City v Liverpool: Fears grow as refree who failed to award Everton a penalty against City named among officials


Paul Tierney will be in charge of VAR when Liverpool face Manchester City on Sunday, the Premier League has confirmed

Tierney, from Salford, was at the centre of controversy back in February when he failed to award Liverpool's neighbours Everton a penalty against City after what appeared to be a blatant handball by Rodri.

Although Tierney was the main match official on the day, he was not called to the pitch side monitor despite VAR reviewing the incident , with City going on to win the match 1-0 at Goodison Park.

The Premier League confirmed that Taylor, from Wythenshawe in Manchester will take charge of the crucial tie alongside assistant referees Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn, with Andre Marriner assuming the role of fourth official.

Paul Tierney will be in charge of VAR, assisted by Timothy Wood.

Liverpool will head into the crunch fixture just a single point behind Pep Guardiola's side knowing that a win would put them at the summit of the Premier League table with a two point cushion over the Manchester rivals.
