Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester United brace for a fight at the Amex on Saturday evening, both looking to build on 3-0 victories in their most recent Premier League matches.
Last Saturday, Graham Potter’s men humiliated Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux, whereas the Red Devils gained momentum by defeating Brentford.
We look into who will be in control for this weekend’s contest now that the Premier League has confirmed the match officials.
Andy Madley will be in charge of calling the game, which has little significance for either team. This will be his 15th Premier League games as a match referee this season, but only his second appearance for both Manchester United and Brentford. He’s given out 35 yellow cards, one straight red, and four penalty kicks so far.
The linesmen for this game are Darren Cann and Adrian Holmes. The pair have assisted 395 Premier League matches between them.
The fourth official for the encounter will be Tony Harrington. It will be his 19th time on the touchline this season, just one of those occasions have been for a United game – against Burnley in February.
Video Assistant Referees (VAR)
For the encounter at the Amex, Chris Kavanagh will serve as the video assistant referee. Sian Massey-Ellis is will be his assistant.
