Premier League announce match officials for Man United’s clash vs Everton



| Last Updated:


The Premier League have confirmed the match officials to lead Manchester United’s clash against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Erik ten Hag‘s side will be travelling to a wounded Everton, who were deducted 10 points for breaching Premier League profit and sustainability rules and now sit joint-bottom of the table.

The Toffees are looking to challenge the decision and their first game following comes against United. A fierce atmosphere is expected and Ten Hag’s players will need to deal with it.

United are in a good spell of form in terms of results when looking at their Premier League results, with four wins in the last five. However, there are still concerns about their performances this term.

Fortunately for Ten Hag, there is expected to be a returning Luke Shaw to his side. The left-back will hopefully be able to add creativity and added link play to United’s left side.

Ten Hag has also suggested that United have been unlucky with the decisions that have gone against his side so far this term and expect that United will get their own luck soon.

The confirmed match officials are more anticipated in the modern game where they have even more power with VAR, and those at Goodison Park on the weekend can be read below.

Match Referee

John Brooks will be leading the game on the weekend and it will be his second time officiating a match involving Ten Hag’s side this season.

Brooks was the referee on the day when United won with a last-minute winner away at Fulham. Scott McTominay’s goal earlier on in the game was controversially ruled out for offside.

Assistant Referees

Lee Betts and Darren Cann will be flanking Brooks and the experienced pair have assisted 532 Premier League fixtures between them.

And the all-important role of the VAR will be in the hands of Chris Kavanagh, who will be assisted by Eddie Smart.

Fourth Official

The man between Sean Dyche and the United management team, who will be without the suspended Ten Hag, will be Andy Madley.
