A rare visit from Marriner for Southampton game
Andre Marriner will referee our first home Premier League game of the 2020/21 season and it is a rare event indeed for the West Midlands official who hasn’t taken charge of a Turf Moor Premier League fixture in almost four years.
His last game at Burnley was the cup tie against Bristol City that was lit up by Steven Defour but his last two games here in the Premier League have both been against Manchester City; the first the 1-0 win when George Boyd scored and then in the following season when Dean Marney scored his only Premier League goal for us in a 2-1 defeat.
Despite the less than pleasing results with him away from home, he’s never really caused us any problems and that’s why he currently sits in second place in the currently suspended RATE THE REF Table with a rating of 78.54 out of 100.
His season is very much underway and today will be his fourth game. He refereed the Community Shield at Wembley, yellow carding Liverpool’s James Milner and then the League Cup tie between West Ham and Charlton that saw a couple of West Ham players carded.
His first Premier League game was last Monday at Molineux where Wolves were beaten 3-1 by Manchester City. He yellow carded City’s Benjamin Mendy, Rodri and Gabriel Jesus in that game.
He’s got some experienced colleagues with him today. Michael Oliver, whose most recent Burnley game was last season’s 1-0 win at West Ham, is the fourth official with Mike Dean, last at Burnley for the 1-1 draw against Wolves in July, on VAR duty at Stockley Park.
