The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Chelsea this Saturday.

Arsenal host Chelsea on Saturday September 24 for the game at the Emirates Stadium and the match carries a 5.30pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Oliver
Linesmen: G Beswick and S Burt
Fourth Official: C Pawson

Match Day referee Oliver has officiated four games in 2016/17 with a return of 22 yellow cards and zero red cards.

His highest card count this season was seven yellows in the game between Watford and Manchester United.

He took in 36 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 131 yellow cards and nine red cards.

He was most card happy in the Capital One Cup final between Liverpool and Manchester City in February with ten yellow cards being shown.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
