Michael Oliver

The 31-year-old Northumberland born man-in-the-middle became the youngest ever referee to take a charge of a Premier League match, six years ago when he was mere at 25 (Birmingham City v Blackburn Rovers).

He was the referee for the 2014 FA Community Shield between Arsenal and Manchester City. The FA Cup holders Arsenal won the match 3-0. Two days later, he was an additional assistant at the 2014 UEFA Super Cup in Cardiff.

Season 2016/17

So far this season Oliver has officiated six Premier League fixtures, one Champions League match and one World Cup qualification game between Sweden and Bulgaria.

Overall, Michael has brandished 33 yellow and no red cards.
