Mike Dean has been announced as the referee for Watford's home game against Bournemouth this weekend.

The official was in charge for the same clash during the 2016/17 season, which ended in a 2-2 draw.

Since then, Dean has officiated five Hornets' matches, including the 4-1 win over Chealsea in the 17/18 season when he sent off Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Three of those five games came last season when the official took charge of the 2-1 home defeat to Manchester United in which Nemanja Matic was shown a red card, the 3-0 home win over Huddersfield and a 1-1 home draw with Southampton.

Most recently Dean oversaw the Hornets' bruising 8-0 defeat away at Manchester City.

Dean has issued two red cards from eight games this season, sending off Southampton's Kevin Danso and West Ham's Arthur Masuaku.

He will be assisted by Ian Hussin and Darren Cann, while fourth official will be Tom Nield and Andre Marriner will be VAR.
