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

Burnley travel to Liverpool on Saturday September 16 for the game at Anfield and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Roger East
Assistant Refs: Harry Lennard and Mick McDonough
Fourth Official: Mike Jones

Match Day referee East has officiated four games in 2017/18, showing 16 yellow cards and one red card.

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.
