Mason will miss the Sheffield United v Liverpool game as a fourth official because of a muscle strain

Premier League referee Lee Mason has pulled out of fourth official duties at Sunday’s game between Sheffield United and Liverpool because of injury.

Lewis Dunk scored from a quick free-kick; Mason disallowed the goal before awarding it but then ruled it out after the video assistant referee intervened.

It is understood Mason, who was limping after the game, has a muscle strain.

John Brookes will come in as replacement at Bramall Lane.

Brighton captain Dunk accused Mason of losing control of the game after his side lost 1-0 at The Hawthorns.
