The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Chelsea and Arsenal this Sunday.

Arsenal travel to Chelsea on Sunday September 17 for the game at Stamford Bridge and the match carries a 1.30pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Oliver
Assistant Refs: Simon Bennett and Stuart Burt
Fourth Official: Neil Swarbrick

Match Day referee Oliver has officiated three games in 2017/18, showing seven yellow cards.

He took in 44 games in 2016/17 with a return of 138 yellow cards and five red cards.

His highest card count that 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 the players edge closer to automatic bans.
