Watford's Premier League game with Everton this weekend will be refereed by Craig Pawson, it has been announced.

The official has been in charge for two Hornets matches this season, including their opening day defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion and their 2-0 defeat at Leicester in December, in which the referee awarded a penalty to the hosts.

Last season, Pawson sent Troy Deeney off 11 minutes into the Hornets' home game with Arsenal for an off the ball incident with Lucas Torreira.

In 21 matches this season, he has issued two red cards, one to Newcastle United's Isaac Hayden and another to Nottingham Forest's Ryan Yates.

He will be assisted this weekend by Lee Betts and Richard West, while Keith Stroud will be fourth official and Jonathan Moss will be on VAR duties, assisted by Dan Cook.
