Experienced Premier League referee Michael Oliver in charge for the Cherries' trip to face Spurs

Michael Oliver will be the man in the middle at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon as the Cherries travel to second-placed Tottenham. 

The weekend will mark just the second time that Oliver has taken charge of Bournemouth this season, with the other occasion being the 3-3 draw with Arsenal at Vitality Stadium in January. 

During Oliver’s 26 Premier League matches that he has officiated this season, four of which have involved Spurs, he has handed out 85 yellow cards, two red cards and awarded 13 penalties.  

The 32-year-old has also taken charge of three Champions League fixtures, two Europa League games and four FA Cup ties. 

Oliver will be assisted in London by Simon Bennett and Stephen Child, with Paul Tierney the game's fourth official.
