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

Arsenal host Middlesbrough on Saturday October 22 for the game at the Emirates Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Mike Dean
Linesmen: S Long and I Hussin
Fourth Official: T Robinson

Match Day referee Dean has officiated seven games in 2016/17 with a return of 33 yellow cards and one red card.

His highest card count so far this season was seven yellows in the game between Stoke City and Manchester City. He also showed seven yellows and one red in the game between Tottenham and Sunderland.

He took in 41 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 136 yellow cards and twelve red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Chelsea and Arsenal on September 19 with a total of six yellows being shown and two reds.

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