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

Burnley host West Ham United on Sunday May 21 for the game at Turf Moor and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Bobby Madley
Linesmen: P Kirkup and M Wilkes
Fourth Official: J Simpson

Match Day referee Madley has officiated 34 games in 2016/17 with a return of 142 yellow cards and four red cards.

This season his highest card count was eight yellows between Tottenham and Liverpool in August. He also showed seven yellows and one red in the match between Southend United and Scunthorpe United.

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.
