Officials - Arsenal v Sunderland (16/5/17)

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

Arsenal host Sunderland on Tuesday May 16 for the game at the Emirates Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Roger East
Linesmen: P Kirkup and M Wilkes
Fourth Official: L Probert

Match Day referee East has taken in 32 games so far in 2016/17 with a return of 134 yellow cards and five red cards.

His highest card count this season was eight yellow cards which he showed in Oxford v Millwall, MK Dons v Northampton and Brighton v Ipswich Town.

He took charge of 39 matches last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 119 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday in May 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.
