Michael Oliver appointed as referee for Leicester- West Ham clash- Can Hammers reproduce Man Utd heroics

West Ham’s last game saw their winless run at home under Martin Atkinson extend to six games, but they will be hopeful of a better result under the referee appointed for their next clash away at the King Power Stadium. The Premier League have awarded Michael Oliver this clash- the same person who was in the middle when the Hammers produced their famous 3-1 upset over Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United a few weeks ago.

The Hammers were also victorious on their last visit to the King Power, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Noble and Inter loanee Joao Mario.

While Oliver has already been in charge of one West Ham game this season, this will be Leicester’s first under him in 2018/19. The Foxes’ last one with Oliver in the middle was their 1-1 home draw against Stoke City in February 2018.

Oliver will be assisted by Simon Bennett and Mick McDonough with Lee Mason to serve as the fourth official.
