Coote back with the Clarets at Craven Cottage
On the last occasion we played at Fulham in a Premier League game it was refereed by David Coote and that’s the case again for tonight’s game.
That game early in the 2018/19 season was Coote’s sixth Burnley game but his first in the Premier League and he’s since gone on to referee us on another five occasions since, all in the Premier League.
Now very much a Premier League referee, 18 of his 25 games this season have been in the top flight with four in the Championship and three FA Cup ties. In those games he’s shown a total of 85 yellow and three red cards. Of those yellows, 44 have gone to home team players and 41 to away team players.
He sent off Christian Benteke in Crystal Palace’s 1-1 draw at West Ham in December and kicked off 2021 by red carding Tottenham’s Matt Doherty at the end of their 3-0 win against Leeds. More recently he dismissed Chelsea’s Thiago Silva against West Brom. They led 1-0 at the time but went on to lose the game 5-2.
Coote’s most recent game was Palace’s 2-0 home defeat against Manchester City. The two players yellow carded in that game, a week last Saturday, were Palace pair Luka Milivojevic and Cheikhou Kouyate.
Robert Jones, who we all remember well from our game this season at Leeds, is fourth official while Peter Bankes is on VAR duty and his last Burnley game was our 1-1 home draw against Sheffield United in July last year.
