Oliver To Officiate Man United Vs Chelsea FA Cup Final

Referee Micheal Oliver will take charge of the FA Cup final fixture between Manchester United and Chelsea at the Wembley Stadium on May 19

Oliver, 33, will be assisted by Lee Betts and Ian Hussin, with Lee Mason as the fourth official.

Neil Swarbrick will be the first video assistant referee (VAR) in FA Cup Final history.

Oliver became the centre of attraction earlier this month when he refereed the Champions League quater-final, second leg fixture  between Real Madrid and Juventus at the Santiago Bernabeu.

With the tie poised at 3-3 on aggregate, Oliver awarded a controversial last-minute penalty to Real  Madrid which was converted by Cristiano Ronaldo.

He also sent off Juventus goalkeeper Gianluca Buffon in the ensuing melee.
