Officials - Stoke v Manchester United (9/9/17)

The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Stoke City and Manchester United this Saturday.

Stoke City host Manchester United on Saturday September 9 for the game at the Bet365 Stadium and the match carries a 5.30pm kick off.

Referee: Neil Swarbrick
Assistant Refs: Darren Cann and Scott Ledger
Fourth Official: Stuart Attwell

Match Day referee Swarbrick has officiated two games in 2017/18, showing six yellow cards.

He took in 34 games in 2016/17 with a return of 126 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count that season was six yellows and one red in the game between Swindon Town and Bolton Wanderers. He achieved the same in the Hull City and Newcastle United game in the EFL Cup.

He took in 35 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 98 yellow cards and seven red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Sunderland and West Ham on October 3 a total of seven yellows being shown and one red.

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