Anthony Taylor will be the man in the middle when Burnley host Arsenal on Saturday.
The Clarets are looking for a first Premier League win of the season against the Gunners and mark Sean Dyche's new contract in style.
Much of the build-up has centred around Burnley's seeming physical approach. Jurgen Klopp referenced it after Liverpool's win over the Clarets last month while Rafa Benitez criticised a James Tarkowski tackle on Richarlison, a challenge Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville said had no place in football, after Burnley's defeat at Everton on Monday night.

Dyche spoke ahead of the visit of Arsenal of his side's impressive disciplinary record which stretches to 97 games without a top flight red card while the Burnley boss was wary of not jinxing the run.
Plenty of Clarets supporters feel the continued noise around Burnley's physicality will soon result in a red card as opposition managers and pundits' views seep into the minds of officials.
It means Taylor must referee the contest and not the chatter when the two sides take to the field.
The Clarets have had seven yellow cards so far this term and Taylor has dished out 10 across his four matches, making him one of the more lenient Premier League officials, although he has brandished one red card - to Reece James after a VAR check during Chelsea's game with Liverpool last month.
Last season Taylor averaged a red card just over every nine games across his 28 matches while he gave an average of under three yellow cards per fixture.
The stats suggest the Manchester official, who had a moment to forget in Tuesday night's Champions League encounter between Dynamo Kyiv and Benfica when he accidentally gave Kyiv midfielder Denys Garmash his marching orders, is not one to hand out cards like confetti and that should lead to a fair, even contest at Turf Moor.
