Premier League confirm Manchester United referees against Fulham



| Last Updated:


Manchester United will be looking to continue their winning streak as they welcome Fulham to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Rasmus Højlund has scored in six straight Premier League games, helping Manchester United climb back into contention for the top-four positions of the table.

The club have won four league fixtures in a row and are yet to lose in 2024, with Erik ten Hag‘s men next facing Fulham at home in the Premier League after back-to-back away wins against Aston Villa and Luton Town.

The Premier League have now confirmed the match officials who will take control of the tie.

Match Referee

Michael Oliver will be the man with the whistle at Old Trafford on Saturday. The experienced referee has taken charge of three United games so far this season, against Tottenham (A), Sheffield United (A), and Liverpool (A), but is yet to referee a fixture at Old Trafford during 2023/24.

He has brandished 94 yellow cards this season and five red cards across all competitions, with three of these coming as a result of two yellows.

Assistant Referees

Stuart Burt and Dan Cook will be flanking Oliver on Saturday, as the two act as linesmen for the tie.

Video Assistant Referees (VAR)

The lead operator in the VAR room will be Rob Jones, with Steve Meredith as his assistant on the screens.

Fourth Official

The man in between Erik ten Hag and Marco Silva will be Craig Pawson. Pawson was the referee for United’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa at Old Trafford in December.
