Manchester United Fans Are Furious With The Referee Choice For The Game Versus Liverpool
Manchester United fans are furious after finding out who'll referee Sunday's Premier League game against Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp's side head to Old Trafford in search of three points as they bid to become Premier League champions.
And it appears Liverpool have been given a boost. Well, that's based on disgruntled United fans who are fuming over Michael Oliver refereeing the match.
Oliver will be the man in the middle with Stuart Burt and Simon Bennett working as assistant referees.
Experienced referee Andre Marriner will be the fourth official.
The decision to appoint Oliver for Sunday's massive league fixture hasn't gone down well with United supporters.
Official: Michael Oliver will referee United vs Liverpool this weekend.
Fact: Out of 25 referees who have refereed 368 games in the last 9½ seasons, Manchester United have a win percentage of 42.3% when Michael Oliver is the referee - the LOWEST win rate from them all.

Meanwhile, United are unbeaten in the league under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He's guided his team to fourth spot following eight league victories since taking charge.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have the chance to regain top spot with Manchester City playing Chelsea in the League Cup final.
