The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Sutton United this Monday.

Arsenal travel to Sutton United on Monday February 20 for the FA Cup Fifth Round tie at Gander Green Lane and the match carries a 7.55pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Oliver
Linesmen: Simon Long and Sian Massey-Ellis
Fourth Official: Andy Davies

Match Day referee Oliver has officiated 27 games in 2016/17 with a return of 87 yellow cards and two 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.
