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

Middlesbrough host Arsenal on Monday April 17 for the game at the Riverside Stadium and the match carries an 8pm kick off.

Referee: Anthony Taylor
Linesmen: S Burt and A Nunn
Fourth Official: K Friend

Match Day referee Taylor has officiated 35 games in 2016/17 with a return of 137 yellow cards and four red cards.

This season his highest card count is eight yellow cards in the game between Leicester City and West Ham. He also showed eight yellow cards in the game between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. Stoke City v Chelsea saw seven yellows and one red as well.

He took in 44 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 147 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Watford and Crystal Palace on September 27 with a total of eight yellows being shown.

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