The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Watford this Monday.

Burnley host Watford on Monday September 26 for the game at Turf Moor and the match carries an 8pm kick off.

Referee: Mike Jones
Linesmen: M Scholes and D Cann
Fourth Official: K Friend

Match Day referee Jones has officiated four games in 2016/17, with a return of 16 yellow cards and two red cards.

This season his highest card count was seven yellows and one red in the Accrington v Morecambe game.

He took in 40 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 131 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2 with a total of seven yellow cards shown. Seven were also shown between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2.

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