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

Burnley travel to Manchester United on Saturday October 29 for the game at Old Trafford and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Mark Clattenburg
Linesmen: J Collin and R West
Fourth Official: K Friend

Match Day referee Clattenburg has officiated eight games in 2016/17 with a return of 34 yellow cards and zero red cards.

He took in 51 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 193 yellow cards and seven red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Bournemouth and Aston Villa on August 8 with a total of seven yellows being shown. That all went out the window though in the Chelsea v Tottenham game that handed Leicester City the title where he showed twelve yellow cards.

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