Referee Taylor is back again for West Ham game
When we played our most recent home game against Newcastle United the referee was Anthony Taylor and he’s back tonight for our home fixture against West Ham United.
The Newcastle game was his fourth Burnley game this season, the most number of times he’s ever refereed us in one season, so tonight takes his total to five although he’s not been as regular in terms of refereeing West Ham; their home draw against Manchester City back in October has been the only occasion he has been in charge of one of their games this season.
He has also shown four red cards in a total of 24 domestic games but the most recent of those was Aston Villa’s Tyrone Mings on Boxing Day.
Tonight he will have Jon Moss on the touchline as fourth official while Stuart Attwell will yet again by on VAR duty for a Burnley game. Moss most recently refereed us two weeks ago at Manchester United but Attwell, who is breaking all records for VAR appearances, last took charge of a Burnley game in February 2019 at Brighton.
