At only 25 years of age, Michael Oliver became the youngest referee in Premier League history when he took charge of Birmingham City’s clash with Blackburn Rovers in August 2010, and he has remained a top-flight official ever since.

Oliver’s rapid rise up the Football League ladder culminated in him being added to the Select Group of referees for the 2010/11 season. Prior to his time in the Premier League, Oliver was a Football League referee for three years after learning his trade through four years at non-league level.

In 2012, his quick progress was rewarded as he was elevated to the FIFA list of referees, making him eligible to take charge of fixtures in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, as well as international matches.

Mr Oliver last refed Fulham in Jan 2018 when we played Southampton in the FA Cup at the Cottage and we lost 1-0. He booked one player from each side the Fulham player was Kevin McDonald.

The last occasion Mr Oliver reffed Southampton was in May 2018 when they won 1 -0 away at Swansea and he booked threee players, one from Southampton.

Last season, 2017/2018, he refed 43 games and dished out 151 yellows and 7 reds, so 3.5 yellows per game.

His busiest game recently was Tottenham versus West Ham in September 2017 when he booked seven players four from West Ham, three from Tottenham and a red card, for a second yellow for Tottenham's Aurier in the 70th minute .
