The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Liverpool on Monday.

Sunderland host Liverpool on Monday January 2 for the game at the Stadium of Light and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Anthony Taylor
Linesmen: A Nunn and H Lennard
Fourth Official: M Jones

Match Day referee Taylor has officiated 21 games in 2016/17 with a return of 77 yellow cards and three red cards.

This season his highest card count is eight yellow cards in the game between Leicester City and West Ham. He showed seven in the game between Chelsea and West Ham and five yellows and two reds in the Manchester City tie against Chelsea.

He took in 44 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 147 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Watford and Crystal Palace on September 27 with a total of eight yellows being shown.

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