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 was in the 3-2 win against Southampton in November 2018 when he booked five players including Mawson and Johansen for fouls.

Co-incidently the previous time Mr Oliver bossed Fulham was in Jan 2018 when we lost 1-0 to Southampton in the FA Cup at the Cottage. He booked one player from each side the Fulham player was Kevin McDonald.

The last occasion Mr Oliver refed Crystal Palace was in December 2018 when they won 1 -0 at home to Leicester City and he booked three players, two from Crystal Palace.

Last season, 2017/2018, he refed 43 games and dished out 151 yellows and 7 reds, so 3.5 yellows per game. This season so far he has refed 28 games and dished out 91 yellows, an average of  3.25 yellows a game, and 6 reds.

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 .
