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

Burnley travel to West Ham United on Wednesday December 14 for the game at the London Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Bobby Madley
Linesmen: P Kirkup and M Perry
Fourth Official: G Scott

Match Day referee Madley has officiated 13 games in 2016/17 with a return of 64 yellow cards and two red cards.

This season his highest card count was eight between Tottenham and Liverpool in August.

He took in 35 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 96 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Chelsea and West Ham in March with eight yellows being shown, prior to that Chelsea and Southampton in October saw seven yellows.

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