Anthony Taylor didn’t referee a Burnley game throughout the 2017/18 Premier League season but he’s at the Turf tonight for the second time when we face Newcastle United.

His previous game this season was the 4-0 home win against Bournemouth. It was a decent enough performance and has lifted his RATE THE REF rating to 61.88 out of 100 although he remains as low as 13th in the 17 strong table, ahead of only Graham Scott, Jon Moss, David Coote and Paul Tierney. That’s no surprise when you look at some of his previous Burnley games with the 3-2 win at Sheffield United in 2008/09 and the defeat by the same scoreline at Swansea two seasons ago standing out.

He’s already refereed 12 domestic games this season, all of them in the Premier League. In those games there have been 42 yellow cards of which 23 have gone to home team players and 19 to away team players.

There haven’t, as yet, been any red cards. The last player he sent off was Fulham’s Denis Odoi in last season’s Championship play-offs, the last in a Premier League game was Davy Propper in Brighton’s 1-1 home draw against Huddersfield last April.

His last game was the Nations League game between the Netherlands and France a week last Friday but his last domestic game was Manchester City’s 3-1 win against Manchester United. Both teams had one player carded in that game. They were City’s Bernardo Silva and Luke Shaw of United.

Of the current 17 select group officials, Taylor is the last to have awarded us a penalty and it was an incorrect decision at Swansea in February 2017. The only penalties we’ve had since in domestic football were in the same season at Everton, awarded by Mark Clattenburg, and in last season’s League Cup tie against Leeds which was refereed by Darren Bond. It’s 55 Premier League games and counting.

The assistant referees are Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn. The fourth official is Simon Hooper whose last Burnley game was the one at Newcastle last season.
