Jarred Gillett will make history in this weekend's match between Watford and Newcastle United when he becomes the first overseas official to referee in the Premier League.

The Australian has been in charge at Vicarage Road before, as he oversaw three Hornets matches last season, including the 4-1 home win over Preston in the Championship.

Gillett also refereed the 0-0 draw at Sheffield Wednesday and the 2-1 defeat away at Queens Park Rangers.

He has been on VAR duty in the top flight already this season, but will make his top flight bow as the man in the middle on Saturday afternoon.

The former Australian A-League referee began officiating in England at the end of the 2018/19 season, when he took charge of three matches, one from each of the EFL's three divisions.

He then became a regular in the Championship in the 2019/20 season.

Helping him out will be assistants Lee Betts and Constantine Hatzidakis, while fourth official will be Martin Atkinson.

Craig Pawson will be on VAR with his assistant Marc Perry.
