Game number three of the season for referee Taylor
Anthony Taylor, who didn’t referee a single Burnley game last season, is at Turf Moor for the third time this season for tomorrow’s game against Southampton.
This season, his performances have been fine, that is for the Burnley games. It appears not so much so when he was in charge of the game between Everton and Bournemouth three weeks ago. Everton boss Marco Silva was very unhappy at his team picking up five yellow cards while Bournemouth didn’t register one. Eddie Howe was also unhappy and felt they had players lucky to stay on the pitch.
On the subject of yellow cards, in 25 domestic games this season, he has issued 81 yellow cards and just two red cards. Of those yellows, 47 have gone to home team players and 34 to away team players. The two red cards came in the same game, Sheffield United’s 3-0 home win against Blackburn when he sent off Chris Basham of the Blades and then Blackburn’s Richard Smallwood.
His last game was last Saturday’s FA Cup tie between Wimbledon and West Ham which Wimbledon won 4-2. The only two yellow cards went to West Ham’s Arthur Masuaku and Ryan Fredericks
The assistant referees tomorrow are Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn. The fourth official, as was the case against Manchester United three days ago, is Martin Atkinson.
