Officials – Southampton v Leicester (22/1/17)

20 Jan

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

Southampton host Leicester City on Sunday January 22 for the game at St Mary’s Stadium and the match carries a 12pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Oliver
Linesmen: S Burt and C Hatzidakis
Fourth Official: R East

Match Day referee Oliver has officiated 23 games in 2016/17 with a return of 74 yellow cards and one red card.

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 the players edge closer to automatic bans.
