Referees Announced For Upcoming Fixtures: See Who’ll Be In Charge Of Your Team

By on April 7, 2014

We’ve just enjoyed another scintillating weekend of Premier League action as we head into the final stretch of the season with it all to play for at the top of the league.

As ever, there were plenty of contentious decisions made by the referees, none-more-so than at Upton Park where Anthony Taylor took center stage as Liverpool beat West Ham 2-1 to go two points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Taylor controversially allowed the Hammers equaliser to stand despite a clear foul from former-Red Andy Carroll on Simon Mignolet. Even the referee’s assistant alerted him to the infringement but Taylor stuck to his guns and allowed the goal. To compound a miserable afternoon for the official, he then wrongfully awarded Liverpool a second half penalty that was tucked away by Steven Gerrard to win the game.

There was also controversy at Goodison Park where Arsenal felt Everton’s second goal shouldn’t have stood as an offside Steven Naismith was clearly impeding the view of Wojciech Szczesny, while Yaya Sanogo’s late consolation was wrongfully chalked off for offside by referee Martin Atkinson.

These were just a few decisions from the referees that had fans up and down the country talking over the weekend and with the man in the middle under the spot-light more than ever, it’s easy to see why fans are keen to know who’ll be officiating their teams upcoming games.

So here are the confirmed referees for the games involving those clubs at the top over the next 10 days.

    Whilst the keeper got a touch on the ball the ball did not change direction or reach a position where the fullback could not retrieve it.
    If a player on any other part of the pitch makes an unsuccessful tackle (IE gets a touch on the ball but dose’nt gain possesion or deny the opponent possesion) and subsequently brings down the player then is’nt that a foul?
