FA confirm referees for Man United vs Liverpool FA Cup quarter-final clash



| Last Updated:


Manchester United will welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon as they fight for their final potential trophy of the season.

After crashing out of the Carabao Cup and Champions League, Manchester United only have the FA Cup left as a potential trophy win as they sit sixth in the Premier League.

They will next face Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the competition. Both teams will be vying for a place in the semi-finals at Wembley, which will take place towards the end of April.

Last season, United made it all the way to the final of the competition, but a 2-1 loss against Manchester City scuppered their dream.

Ahead of the tie, the FA have confirmed who will referee the game.

Confirmed officials

John Brooks (pictured below) will be the man with the whistle at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. The experienced referee has taken charge of just one United game this season—a 1-0 win away against Fulham, in which Bruno Fernandes scored a 90+1st-minute👇 winner.

Lee Betts and Timothy Wood will be on the sidelines, acting as assistant referees for Brooks during the game. Anthony Taylor has been handed the fourth official job, separating Erik ten Hag and Jurgen Klopp on Sunday.

The Video Assistant Referee job has been handed to Tim Robinson, who Edward Smart will assist. Christopher Kavanagh has been handed the role of support VAR.
