| Last Updated:


Manchester United will look to win their second Premier League fixture in a row as they invite Crystal Palace to Old Trafford under Erik ten Hag.

This fixture represents the second of a double-header between the two clubs, with Manchester United defeating Crystal Palace 3-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening in the Carabao Cup.

After the opening six league fixtures has seen Erik ten Hag‘s Reds win three and lose three, they will be looking to create some sort of consistency on the field after their win against Burnley last weekend.

Confirmed match officials

The referee for Monday night’s tie will be Chris Kavanagh. He refereed three Manchester United fixtures last season and has officiated a total of 13 Premier League fixtures in that time – handing out 41 yellow cards.

Kavanagh was also the fourth official for United’s most recent Premier League result – the 1-0 victory over Burnley last Saturday.

His association with Manchester United is most recently famous for the 3-1 FA Cup tie against Fulham last campaign, where he sent off two Fulham players and their manager at Old Trafford in a crazy 5-minute period.

On the sidelines will be Harry Lennard and Matthew Wilkes, who will act as assistant referees for Harrington during the game. The fourth official job has been handed to Dean Whitestone, who will separate Erik ten Hag and Roy Hodgson.

The Video Assistant Referee job will be taken by Peter Bankes, who will be assisted by Eddie Smart.
