Is Michael Oliver a Man United hater? The case against the referee after Chelsea loss

Michael Oliver v Man United

After Chelsea knocked Man United out the FA Cup, Jose Mourinho spoke out against referee Michael Oliver.

The official courted controversy at Stamford Bridge, especially after he sent off Ander Herrera in the first half for two bookable offences.

After the match, the Special One undermined the official in his post match interview as he claimed Michael Oliver has “potential” to be a good referee.

Is he biased?

Mourinho also stoke the conspiracy theorists into action claiming Michael Oliver has repeatedly made decisions against the Red Devils this season.

In the four Man United games he’s officiated, the Red Devils have two draws, two defeats and zero wins, while opposition teams have received three penalties and United have had one player sent off.

For the record, those games have been Watford’s 3-1 win over United, Everton’s 1-1 draw with United, the 1-1 draw with Liverpool and last night’s game at Chelsea.
