The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United this Wednesday.

Tottenham Hotspur host Manchester United on Wednesday January 31 for the game at Wembley Stadium and the match carries a 8pm kick off.

Referee: Andre Marriner
Assistant Refs: Scott Ledger and Simon Beck
Fourth Official: Graham Scott

Match Day referee Marriner has officiated 21 games in 2017/18, showing 58 yellow cards and three red cards so far.

He took in 37 games in 2016/17, returning 146 yellow cards and seven red cards.

His highest card count that season was nine yellows and three red cards in the game between Panathinaikos and Ajax in the Europa League.

He took in 35 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 120 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Swansea and Chelsea in April with a total of nine yellows being shown.

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

  • Unlike Jonathon Moss, let’s hope Mariner officiates Antonio Valencia correctly in this fixture. He went straight through the back of our players every time in the last fixture and never got booked for a string of cumulative and a couple of really bad challenges. Ironically, he did get booked for diving 10 mins before their goal, but never for the physical stuff.

    We clearly played well below ourselves in the Oct fixture, but I still say Moss’s incorrect treatment of Valencia gave them momentum they shouldn’t have had down our left and that was a major factor in the game.

  • Another uninspiring choice as referee, although it could be worse I suppose, we could get Moss, Scott, Mason, or Pawson. Having said that unless our lot are truly back from the “Spanish sunshine break” which they weren’t last week v Newport, the identity of the referee will be the least of our worries as we will get totally stuffed, although I suppose we can’t play that badly again. One thing for sure unless we improve beyond recognition on last week, the main quality we will need from the referee is the ability to count to five.

  • We never get anything against Manure.. They always get bucketloads of luck. Still can never forget the Mendez goal that was a yard over the line which would have given us a 1-0 win at Old Trafford. We have also been on the end of dodgy home ref decisions because of the influence of Fergie and the crowd. Good F A Cup draw… no excuses Spurs. We could have been away at Chelski, Manure or Man C. Will we get rid of Llorente and Sissoko? Nope. Looks as though Janssen is on his way back although injured. At least he runs around and holds the ball up and generally tries to involve himself unlike Llorente who just stands around. We have made some incredibly “bum” decisions on strikers and wingers N’Koudou, Nj, Sissoko etc.

  • I guess this will become the match day thread! Vital jouno’s seem to have been loaned out.

    Well, let’s see a reaction to the draw against the mighty Newport. Another slow start and top-4 will be out of sight. Let’s be havin ya. Confident of 3-0 Geof? COYS!

  • Critical, I will be astounded if we win by more than one goal. Never mind the performance in this one, a streaky deflection in off somebody’s bollox will do.

  • Anyone know what the heck has happened to this site? The Southampton article hasn?t been superseded to this date. Spursex, anyone??

  • Why does Levy leave any transfer deals to the very last minute? Does he scour the reduced items in Tesco at the end of the day? Is he a Debenhams Blue Cross fan? We always seem to have this will he/wont he at the end of the transfer window. Other clubs have made their signings and now they are ready to play. Give Llorente away. Chelsea can have him.

  • Wentworth, we haven’t graduated to Tesco yet, we still scour the food banks for freebee hand outs. Mind you we have no squad issues, that’s why we can’t beat the likes of Newport County in an important FA Cup tie. We have 3 or 4 players who have to play when fit, because we have no alternatives, but never mind Messrs Lewis and Levy are not bothered, as their priorities lie elsewhere.

  • The good news is that Toby, Rose, Eriksen, Lloris and Lamela have all returned to full training, which hopefully means they’re available for selection tomorrow. I’m sure it’s just coincidence but Roses’s injury has coincided with the duration of the TW.

  • Serge is out so Trippier is in for a tough night, facing either A.sanchez or Martial, however, Trippier has better assists and is a better crosser than walker so Spurs should be alright. Spurs can’t lose a win or a draw nothing less is acceptable.

  • From the official page ….’Serge Aurier (calf) and Harry Winks (ankle). Both continue with field-based reconditioning.’ Field based reconditioning? What the hell does that mean? Is it even English? It sounds like something from a sci-fi movie!

  • Walker again, palmover? Seems to me like you could do with some Vital Spurs based reconditioning. However, It is a highly effective brainwashing procedure that can potentially have some seriously negative side effects… The most dangerous one being, a tendency to write and post something that will show at least some modicum of positivity for THFC, it’s players and their manager. It should also be pointed out to you that any memories or sentimentality that you may currently hold for a certain ex-Spurs right-back will be completely and utterly eradicated from your mind. ….. EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!

  • To follow on from Geof and his ridiculously optimistic and quite frankly stupid 3-0 to the Spurs prediction… (Where did that come from)? I am going to go for a nil-nil to the Spurs, score draw. Drawing was the new losing but It is now, officially, the new winning… Please lads, don’t let me down!

  • Wondering how Mourinho will play us tomorrow. Will he sit back and attack us on the counter or attack, attack, attack us ?

  • Someone needs to create a “Vital Walker” site for Palmover. He’ll be the only poster on there, but at least all his posts would be relevant.

  • Man City lose Sane for up to a couple of months and bid over £50m for Mahrez as a replacement. The market just gets crazier. I don’t know how Mahrez thinks he’s going to get much playing time but maybe that’s not important to him. Vis-a-vis a discussion on here recently about Mahrez’s work rate: Pep doesn’t seem to be bothered which is interesting given the high pressing game that his forwards play and who work as hard as any in the EPL.

  • Regarding the Moura transfer it is probably a case of getting his work permit sorted and approved. These things do take time, but we all know Levy loves a last minute deal, surprised it’s in January though.
