Mr. Michael Oliver acted closely while on duty in the match between Man United and Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup at dawn on January 11 (Hanoi time).
On social networks, fans shared a close moment between Michael Oiliver and Manchester United midfielder Fred in the 43rd minute.
The action of the referee born in 1985 made Aston Villa fans unhappy.
“Professional football cannot do this while the game is in progress,” the fan criticized. “Perhaps Oliver forgot all his actions were broadcast live on television,” Dylan’s account commented.
In this match, the referee made many decisions that put Aston Villa at a disadvantage. The first was the denial of Danny Ings’ goal in the 51st minute. After not detecting the away striker’s offside, Mr. Oliver carefully watched the slow motion. At this time, the referee born in 1985 discovered that Jacob Ramsey was in an offside position and acted to prevent Edison Cavani’s momentum from returning.
In the 88th minute, Mr. Oliver did not give Aston Villa a penalty after Luke Shaw swung his hand in the face of Konsa in the penalty area. This situation also made the player on the away team’s nose bleed.
MU spent 90 arduous minutes against Aston Villa. Scott McTominay opened the scoring early, but after that, the “Red Devils” lost control of the midfield and often had to fend off the opponent’s attacks. De Gea’s net shook twice in the second half, but the away team’s goals were disallowed for offside.
After the match, coach Ralf Rangnick said: “MU still has a lot to improve, but everything will become easier with this victory. Keeping a clean sheet is very important. The players worked together. very good”.
A tough victory over coach Steven Gerrard’s teachers and students helped MU win the right to the fourth round of the FA Cup against Middlesbrough, the club playing in the First Division.
