He made a number of controversial decisions during the match which left United boss Jose Mourinho describing him after the game as a referee “with fantastic potential”.

Oliver has taken charge of a number of Liverpool games this season including Leicester City (a), Manchester United (a), Stoke (h), Watford (h), Swansea (a) and Arsenal (a).

During his 32 games this season he’s issued 97 yellow cards and 3 red cards.
