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

Stoke City host West Bromwich Albion on Saturday December 23 for the game at the Bet365 Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Neil Swarbrick
Assistant Refs: Scott Ledger and Adrian Holmes
Fourth Official: Chris Kavanagh

Match Day referee Swarbrick has officiated 12 games in 2017/18, showing 31 yellow cards so far.

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.
