Arsenal PANIC? Ref Oliver appointed for Chelsea showdown

Ref Michael Oliver will take charge of Arsenal's blockbuster with Chelsea.

The Gunners haven't beaten Chelsea in the league since the dramatic 5-3 victory at Stamford Bridge in 2011, and that run could extend with Michael Oliver appointed to referee.

The Sun reports with Oliver refereeing, the North London side have failed to register a win in their last EIGHT Premier League fixtures, drawing five and losing three.

In contrast, Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 13 encounters, picking up seven victories and six draws.

Oliver officiated Arsenal's opening game of the 2016/17 season, where they lost 4-3 at home to Liverpool.
