Officials - Watford v Chelsea (5/2/18)

The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Watford and Chelsea this Monday.

Watford host Chelsea on Monday February 5 for the game at Vicarage Road and the match carries an 8pm kick off.

Referee: Craig Pawson
Assistant Refs: Ian Hussin and Adrian Holmes
Fourth Official: Bobby Madley

Match Day referee Pawson has officiated 23 games in 2017/18, showing 83 yellow cards and four red cards so far.

He took in 34 games in 2016/17 with a return of 139 yellow cards and five red cards.

That 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 in 2015/17 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 the players edge closer to automatic bans.
