Ref Watch: Andre Marriner has been very lenient this season
Ref Watch: Andre Marriner has been very lenient this season

Our weekly Ref Watch feature returns now that the international break has been boxed off for another four months. I'll be looking at which officials are in charge of what fixtures in Gameweek 9, alongside offering up a tailor-made 11/2 treble that could be worth having a few quid on after delving deeper into the stats.

Our tips for your weekend Same Game Multi

So, you know who's in charge of each individual top-flight fixture this weekend and the stats behind all 10 referees, but where is the best value to be had? Well, look no further as we've plucked three tips which pays 11/2 as a treble with bet365.

Aston Villa v Brighton (Michael Oliver) - under 4 match cards

  • We'll start at Villa Park where a pretty lenient Michael Oliver takes charge of proceedings. The 35-year-old has given out just 15 yellows in 7 outings this term which is an average of just over 2 cards per game.
  • Brighton and Villa rank 7th and 8th respectively in the league's yellow card table after eight games with 14 (Villa) and 12 (Brighton) bookings to their name so are fairly well behaved. I'd be shocked to see more than three cards in this one.

Tottenham v Man City (Mike Dean) - over 1 card for Tottenham

  • Mike Dean, need I say any more? The man made for the big screen loves the big occasion and will flourish in charge of the weekend's standout fixture between Spurs and City. With 17 yellows and a red to his name in 6 outings this season, the Liverpudlian has been as card-happy as ever and that is a trend I expect to continue this weekend.
  • Plenty of repeat offenders when it comes to cards participating in this one; the likes of Hojbjerg, Walker, Rodri and Aurier all love a firm (and sometimes silly) challenge so there should be more cards than Clinton's come Saturday evening.

Wolves v Southampton (Andre Marriner) - under 3 match cards

  • Quite the opposite at Molineux on Monday night, as Andre Marriner is in charge of Wolves v Southampton. The original D.R.E has given out just 8 yellows (no reds) in his four outings this term - the lowest of any official to have taken charge of four or more matches.
  • Wolves are the league's most well-behaved side with 7 yellow cards to their name, while Saints have 12, so I'm expecting a tame affair with few cards shown.
Ref Watch Treble
Sat, 15:00
Under 4 match cards in Villa v Brighton, over 1 card for Spurs v City, under 3 match cards in Wolves
  • Michael Oliver (Villa v Brighton) averages just 2.14 yellows p.g, the second-lowest of all the ref's in the top-flight that have taken charge of seven games
  • Mike Dean (Spurs v City) loves to dish out the cards, brandishing 17 yellows so far, and I expect him to be card-happy in this weekend's feature game
  • Andre Marriner (Wolves v Saints) is a lenient ref and Wolves are the best behaved side in the PL this term with just 7 bookings
