Jarred Gillett refereed two of our Championship games last season, the home win against West Brom and the draw against Sunderland, and our defeat at Wolves in the Premier League this season, but tomorrow he will referee his first top flight Turf Moor game when Arsenal are our visitors.

Gillett moved to England from his native Australia in 2019, refereeing the League Two game between Morecambe and Charlton just a few weeks after taking charge of Brisbane Roar v Western Sydney in the A-League.

He was immediately moved into Select Group 2 for the 2019/20 season and two years later took the step up to the Select Group, refereeing for the first time in the Premier League for the Watford v Newcastle game in September 2021.

Now in his third season in the top group, tomorrow will be his 38th Premier League game. It will be his fourth Arsenal game in the league as it will be his fourth Burnley game, including those two in the Championship and I’m sure we’ll be hoping for a better performance from him than in those previous games with his performances leaving him bottom of RATE THE REF with a rating of just 34.58 out of 100 with the lowest ratings recorded in each of the four disciplines.

This season he’s refereed sixteen games in English football. Eleven of them have come in the Premier League with two in the Championship and three in the cup competitions. There have been seventy yellow and three red cards in those game. It’s not often the case with referees that there are more yellow cards to home team players than away team players but there have been with Gillett with 38 to home players and 32 to away players.

Two of the three players he’s sent off have also been home team players. He sent off Chelsea’s Malo Gusto in their 1-0 home defeat against Aston Villa and in the first of his two Championship games he dismissed Sunderland’s Dan Neal with the ten men team then conceding four goals at home against Middlesbrough. His most recent red card was in mid-December when he sent off Yves Bissouma in Spurs’ 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest.

There was just one yellow card in his most recent game. The player carded was Brentford’s Neal Maupay in the 3-1 home defeat against Manchester City.

The fourth official tomorrow is Simon Hooper whose most recent Burnley game was our 1-1 draw at Brighton. Paul Tierney is on VAR duty; he refereed our Boxing Day defeat against Liverpool.
