The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Burnley and Liverpool this Monday.

Burnley host Liverpool on Monday January 1 for the game at Turf Moor and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Roger East
Assistant Refs: Mark Scholes and Mick McDonough
Fourth Official: Martin Atkinson

Match Day referee East has officiated 14 games in 2017/18, showing 49 yellow cards and two red cards.

He took in 33 games in 2016/17 with a return of 140 yellow cards and five red cards.

His highest card that year was eight yellow cards which he showed in matches between Oxford v Millwall, MK Dons v Northampton and Brighton v Ipswich Town.

He took charge of 39 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 119 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday in May with a total of eight yellows being shown.

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