Chelsea double for Marriner
Tuesday night saw Chris Kavanagh referee our home game against Leicester City having refereed the away game against them, and it’s the same for Andre Marriner who is at the Turf tomorrow having refereed our game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge back in November.
Although he refereed the recent FA Cup tie against Huddersfield, his most recently league game at Burnley was the 1-1 draw last season against Arsenal, on this weekend a year ago, a day when he sent off Erik Pieters for handling on the line only for Kevin Friend to correct him and him subsequently rescind the card and cancel out the penalty award.
This season, he’s refereed twenty games, thirteen of them in the Premier League, two in the Championship and five in the cups. In those games there have been 67 yellow and three red cards. Thirty of the yellows have gone to home team players with 37 to away team players. He sent off Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey in their 3-2 home defeat against Spurs in what was Steve Bruce’s final game in charge. Manchester City’s Aymeric Laporte was the second to see red in their shock 2-0 home defeat against Crystal Palace. The third red card came in the Championship when he dismissed Bournemouth’s Gary Cahill late in their 1-0 win at Barnsley.
Marriner’s most recent game was Southampton’s 3-1 FA Cup win against West Ham two days ago. West Ham had both Romaine Perraud and Ibrahima Diallo yellow carded alongside West Ham’s Craig Dawson.
Fourth official tomorrow is Michael Oliver who refereed our early season home draw against Leeds. Mike Dean is on VAR duty; he was at the Turf to referee our recent home game against Manchester United.
