Premier League Referees: April 12, 13 & 14
NOTE: This refers to an appointment in the past. See the sidebar for updated appointments.
Well, no doubt, this weekend’s Big Match is Liverpool v. Manchester City. With four points dividing them, and City still with two games in hand on both Liverpool and Chelsea, this match could decide the title, pardon the hyperbole.
And when you think hyperbole, you think Mark Clattenburg. Am I right? He’s the referee.
The Relegation Lads all have tough matches: Fulham v. Norwich (Mike Dean), Southampton v. Cardiff (Mike Jones), and Sunderland v. Everton.
Sunderland are recovering from their thrashing at the hands of my Spurs this week. (Thanks, Harry Kane!) And they face the high-flying Everton, who actually have a legitimate chance at Champions League football, and are just one point off of Arsenal at the moment.
They’ll be refereed by Lee Probert (above). And you all know how I feel about him.
And just because I feel like a Howard Webb update is mandatory, he’s at Crystal Palace v. Aston Villa.
Don’t forget! There are FA Cup semi final matches this weekend, as well. Andre Marriner and Michael Oliver will be there.
