So far, so good for the rookie referee from Swindon in a 'big six' PL game. Besides not cautioning De Gea/Fernandes for mobbing dissent at 45' (and we know there is a de facto carte blanche on this from PGMOL...), I would say faultless 1H by Simon Hooper!

(NB: I missed first bit of the game, but checked a liveticker and seems I didn't miss anything).

Canít really blame him for not cautioning them as the ball hit Dalot in the face full flush and he didnít stop the game as he had done on two occasions when other players got hit in face with the ball I think Hooper knew he had made a error that aside heís let the game flow and thereís been no complaints or dissent other than what the OP mentioned

Great advantage to allow Man Utd to score, could easily have blown 👏👏

Also nice to hear the commentators mention it!

Super advantage played by Hooper for the second Man U goal when Hussin flagged for offside.

Sorry but this is an absolute masterclass from Mr hooper this evening and a lot better than I have seen Taylor officiate in a long long time

Hooper has fully justified his appointment and if he carries this form through the rest of the season I can very well see him getting the league cup final, like Marriner he is not a big sprinter but gets himself in good positions to make the correct decisions

Really not the same thing.  The shot that hit Dier was travelling as fast as a ball can travel and everyone saw the reaction when it hit him, that isn't unlike being hit by a boxer, he was completely dazed.  The one that hit Dalot was travelling at a tenth of the pace and his complaint was more that it had winded him as hit him in the throat.

Excellent performance by Simon Hooper, looks much more confident and that can only come from getting games.

The PGMOL bosses put their faith in Simon Hooper and he delivered. People are waxing lyrical about him at the moment and justifiably so too. A Tottenham supporting mate joined in the praise on the phone to me a short while ago.
Agree with a previous post that Hooper has to be in line for one of the big three domestic Cup finals if he maintains this really consistent, high quality standard of officiating. He has improved out of all recognition and is unrecognisable now from his uncertain, diffident beginnings.

Great work!

A referee with a smile on his face. Shame Spurs did not turn up! Hard to find fault really, sometimes head "injuries" are difficult to spot in real time especially given the (yawns! NOT ALLOWED) of footballers these days. Flailing arm - stop the game, hits throat - stop the game. Especially if you are defending. I have wondered whether in all the games played over the years, has a head injury that was not treated promptly been made worse? Anyhow, I digress as praise should be given where its due.

Masterclass. No other words. Thatís how to let a game flow, Taylor should take note.

He should be trusted on more of the big games.

Hopefully Attwell is as good on Saturday (he was good tonight at anfield)

Based on the season so far I would say Hooper for EFL cup Final. Attwell for FA cup final.

He had a great game,I think the reason he didnít stop the game when Dalot was hit was that the ball was still in the penalty area with the possibility of a goal,the other 2 where in midfield
