John Brooks appointed as referee for Manchester City vs Burnley in the FA Cup
John Brooks will take charge as Manchester City face Vincent Kompany’s Burnley in the FA Cup quarter-final at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
The 33-year-old will officiate his third FA Cup game of the season on Saturday. He took charge of Championship side Sheffield United’s triumph over Spurs in the fifth round as well as their win over Millwall in the third round.
This will be his first game refereeing Pep Guardiola’s team. He has officiated 11 Premier League games this season, most recently Bournemouth’s 1-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday. He has given out 50 yellow cards in those 11 games, at an average of 4.6 per game. He’s yet to give out a red card in the Premier League but has sent a player off in both the Championship and Carabao Cup this season.
