Clattenburg to miss another weekend of Premier League action
The referee could know his fate by the end of this week, following an investigation into his conduct during Chelsea’s clash with Manchester United.

MARK CLATTENBURG WILL miss another weekend of Premier League matches, but the outcome of the investigation into Chelsea’s complaint against the referee could be known by the end of this week.

The Premier League announced its list of match officials for the latest round of fixtures on Monday and, for the third successive weekend, Clattenburg has been omitted.

The Football Association are investigating allegations from Chelsea the 37-year-old official used a term understood to have been interpreted as racist towards John Obi Mikel during the Premier League match against Manchester United on October 28.

Both the Football Association and the police, as a result of a complaint by the Society of Black Lawyers, are making enquiries.
