Officials - Brighton v Burnley (16/12/17)

The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Brighton and Burnley this Saturday.

Brighton host Burnley on Saturday December 16 for the game at the Amex Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Chris Kavanagh
Assistant Refs: Constantine Hatzidakis and Mick McDonough
Fourth Official: Andre Marriner

Match Day referee Kavanagh has officiated 13 games in 2017/18, showing 37 yellow cards and one red card so far.

He took in 40 games in 2016/17 with a return of 133 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count this season was eight yellows in the game between Derby County and Nottingham Forest.

He took in 32 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 114 yellow cards and three red cards.

He's pretty card card happy. In the match between Huddersfield and Preston on Boxing Day he showed a total of seven yellows. Blackpool and Barnsley on September 19 saw a total of six yellows and he also showed six earlier in the season in the Capital One Cup clash between Aston Villa and Notts County in August. In the MK Dons and Brighton match in March he showed eight yellows, with one red.

Kavanagh started refereeing in 1998 at the age of 13. Sixteen years later, he was appointed to the EFL Referees List and has now refereed over 50 EFL matches, including more than 20 Championship games. As part of the PGMO development programme, he officiated in the Dallas Cup in 2014 and was appointed as the fourth official for the FA Vase Final at Wembley in 2015.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of the players edge closer to automatic bans.
