Match Day Officials v Manchester City (23/4/17)

The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Manchester City this weekend.

Arsenal host Manchester City on Sunday April 23 for the FA Cup Semi Final tie at Wembley Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Craig Pawson
Linesmen: Simon Bennett and Steve Child
Fourth Official: Stuart Attwell

Match Day referee Pawson has officiated 30 games in 2016/17 with a return of 123 yellow cards and five red cards.

This season his highest card count was eleven yellow cards in the game between Burnley and Middlesbrough. Prior to that his record was nine yellows in the Europa League tie between Sassuolo and Rapid Vienna and he also showed eight yellows and one red in the game between Stoke City and Leicester City.

He took in 39 matches last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 117 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Slovan Liberec and Braga in the Europa League on September 17 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He showed seven yellows in three games after that.

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