Kevin Friend has not been given any fixtures for the next round of fixtures by the Premier League.


Friend was in charge of the game between Liverpool and Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, which the Reds won 3-1.

With minutes left on the clock, Diogo Jota surged clear and bundled into Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

Before VAR began looking for confirmation, Friend awarded a penalty. Craig Pawson, a Stokely Park employee, then encouraged him to go to the monitor.

Friend analyzed the slow-motion videos and changed his mind, as he had done all season.

Every time a referee was asked to consult the pitch-side monitor, the original ruling was altered.
