Dean’s back to blow the final whistle of the season
Having refereed away games at Leicester City and Huddersfield Town, followed by the home games against Tottenham Hotspur and Cardiff City, Mike Dean will referee us for a record fifth time this season when he takes charge of our final game of the season against Arsenal.
It’s only a month since he was last with us; that was the day he awarded Cardiff a penalty before correctly changing his mind after talking to his assistant. It was almost like VAR without VAR.
He’s refereed just five games since he was last at Burnley and he’s kept up his figures in terms of yellow cards with a further 27 in those games which has taken his total to 156 in 36 games this season to add to eleven red cards. Of those yellows, 72 have gone to home team players and 84 to away team players.
Dean’s last game was Manchester City’s 1-0 win against Leicester five days ago. City trio Vincent Kompany, David Silva and Gabriel Jesus were all yellow carded alongside Leicester’s Harry Maguire and Kelechi Iheanacho.
There are likely to be cards tomorrow, he might want to hog the limelight too, but he’s one of our best referees and currently leads RATE THE REF with a rating of 79.68 (prior to the Cardiff game).
The assistant referees are Dan Robathan and Nick Hopton. The fourth official is Lee Mason who hasn’t refereed a Burnley game since March last year when he was in charge of our 3-0 win at West Ham.
