Match Day Officials v Manchester United (23/4/17)

The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Manchester United this weekend.

Burnley host Manchester United on Sunday April 23 for the game at Turf Moor and the match carries a 2.15pm kick off.

Referee: Anthony Taylor
Linesmen: J Collin and P Kirkup
Fourth Official: L Mason

Match Day referee Taylor has officiated 36 games in 2016/17 with a return of 141 yellow cards and four red cards.

This season his highest card count is eight yellow cards in the game between Leicester City and West Ham. He also showed eight yellow cards in the game between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. Stoke City v Chelsea saw seven yellows and one red as well.

He took in 44 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 147 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Watford and Crystal Palace on September 27 with a total of eight yellows being shown.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
