You may need to get a wire connector to install on the ground (earth) wire, so it can be connected to the terminal connection point on the new oven.
If one wasn't provided with the oven, some do this as a service, just look at the ground terminal or in the bag with the instructions, etc. for one. If not, you should be able to purchase one, you'll just need to get one that fits the wire, so knowing the gauge of the wire (either Awg or Kcmil size) will make this easier to get the right connector size.
I recommend that a ring terminal be used, so in the event that the fastening screw might loosen, the ring terminal will not fall off the contact point, whereas a fork terminal could and can come off much more easily.
Not having more detailed info about the brand and where you're located, makes further possible solutions difficult to provide, since Fixya doesn't require requestors to provide any info on what country they're in, etc.
Nonetheless, I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Live goes to live as normal earth to earth as normal, and the neutral is probably a comonj terminal, in other words it probably has a lnk joining the 2 neutrals together.

You can put the live and neutral on either of the outer terminals terminal. It really doesn't matter. It's the same principle as not needing to screw in a bayonet light bulb a certain way round. As long as the circuit is complete, it will work correctly.
To put it in the simplest terms, attach the earth wire to the shorter centre terminal with the live and neutral wires on the two outer terminals and job's a good 'un.
Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know.
