The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Liverpool and Newcastle United this Saturday.
Liverpool host Newcastle United on Saturday March 3 for the game at Anfield and the match carries a 5.30pm kick off.

Match Day referee Scott has officiated 23 games in 2017/18, showing 57 yellow cards and four red cards so far.
He took in 27 games in 2016/17, with a return of 93 yellow cards and five red cards.
His highest card count that season was in the Luton Town and Wycombe Wanderers game where he showed six yellow cards. He also showed six in the game between Bristol City and Burton Albion.
He took in 20 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 79 yellow cards and two red cards.
He was most card happy in the game between Leeds United and Huddersfield Town in March with eight yellow cards being shown.
Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of the players edge closer to automatic bans.
