Mike Dean will referee our away game against Liverpool for the second successive season having been in charge in January this year when an Ashley Barnes penalty gave us a 1-0 win.

As we know, he’s no stranger to Burnley games and tomorrow will be the 27th time he will have refereed one of our Premier League games, and that’s seven more than Martin Atkinson who is next in the list.

Now aged 53, it was reported that he would be locking his whistle away at the end of last season but he’s back for one more year at least and that 27 goes up to 49 Burnley games when you include Football League and cup games alongside one memorable day at Wembley in May 2009.

Dean is a referee who can sometimes court controversy and he was certainly caught up in some in the first week of February when he twice reversed decisions on the advice of the VAR official and sent off Southampton’s Jan Bednarek in their 9-0 defeat at Manchester United before ludicrously being advised to dismiss West Ham’s Tomáš Souček in their 0-0 draw at Fulham.

He was the last referee to red card a Burnley player, sending off Robbie Brady at Huddersfield in January 2019. That was his 99th Premier League red card. Ashley Young, then at Manchester United was number 100 and Dean’s total in the Premier League is now 112, the most recent being Newcastle’s Fabian Schär.

He started his 2021/22 season last week with the Watford v Aston Villa game. No red cards, but four yellows to Watford trio Peter Etebo, Ken Sema and Juraj Kucka along with Villa’s Tyrone Mings.

Andy Madley is fourth official tomorrow; his last Burnley game was last season’s 1-1 home draw against Leicester. Stuart Attwell became close to being our resident VAR official last season and he’s back again, a referee who hasn’t taken charge of a Burnley game in over two and a half years, since our 3-1 win at Brighton in February 2019.
