‘That’s A Bit Unfortunate For Us!’ ‘Why Why Why’ West Ham Fans On Twitter React As Referee For Villa Game Is Confirmed

West Ham face Aston Villa at Villa Park on Monday night and the Premier League have now confirmed who will be in charge for the match.

Referee Mike Dean will be officiating and it is fair to say that Hammers supporters on Twitter are not too keen on him overseeing the game:

Dean has already caused controversy when in charge for a West Ham this season, having ordered a retake of a penalty in the 5-0 defeat to Manchester City on the opening day.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski had saved Sergio Aguero’s original penalty but the Hammers players were penalised for encroachment, leading to the Argentine scoring at the second attempt.

It was initially thought that Fabianski had been punished for standing off his line when the penalty was taken but the decision was later clarified.

West Ham fans will be hoping that there will be no similar issues when Dean officiates at Villa Park.
