Referee announced for Leicester vs West Ham announced- Same as August 2021 clash

The referee for Leicester vs West Ham later this evening will be the same person who took charge of the reverse fixture between these two sides at the London Stadium earlier this season. West Ham won that game 4-1 and Leicester had Ayoze Perez sent off just before the interval by ref Michael Oliver.

Somewhat interestingly, Oliver has been in charge of two clashes between West Ham and Leicester and red carded a player in both games. One, as mentioned above, was Ayoze Perez. The other was Mark Noble in the 1-1 draw between the two sides back in the 2018/19 season at the King Power Stadium.
