Premier League confirm match referees for Crystal Palace vs Manchester United, fans will be fuming



| Last Updated:


The Premier League have confirmed who will officiate Crystal Palace against Manchester United at Selhurst Park on Monday evening.

Manchester United will be looking to correct their recent woes on Monday night when they face Crystal Palace in the Premier League. Erik ten Hag is under pressure.

Last time out, United fell to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford with Burnley, with many fans lambasting the club’s inability to convert their chances into goals, with their only finish coming from Antony latching onto a poor back-pass.

They currently sit sixth in the Premier League table and are in serious danger of dropping even further, with Newcastle United just a point behind. Should they do so, they would be in danger of qualifying for the Europa Conference League or missing out on European football entirely, rather than qualifying for the Europa League.

The match officials for the game have been confirmed below.

Confirmed officials

Jarred Gillett (pictured below) will referee Monday evening at Selhurst Park. The experienced referee has overseen three United games this season, including one incredibly painful tie that United fans will be fuming about.

All three ties were in the Premier League, with the first being a painful 3-1 loss against Brighton at Old Trafford. The second was the club’s thrilling 4-3 win over Wolves away from home, where Kobbie Mainoo scored the winning goal – but the third was the 4-3 loss against Chelsea.

Fans will be fuming that Gillett is officiating another United game after many pointed out that the length of extra time in that game, where Cole Palmer scored twice, was far longer than it needed to be. Had Gillet selected a more appropriate length of extra time, United may have won that game 3-2.

Beyond this, a ground-breaking announcements has confirmed that Gillett will wear a camera during the tie as part of filming for a one-off promotion for match officials. The footage will not be broadcast live but is expected to be released at a later date.

Lee Betts and Neil Davies will be on the sidelines, acting as Brooks’ assistant referees during the game. Graham Scott has been handed the fourth official job, separating Erik ten Hag and Oliver Glasner on Monday night.

Tony Harrington has been handed the video assistant referee job, with whom Constantine Hatzidakis will assist. Hatzidakis was involved in a controversy as a linesman earlier this season after he was taped elbowing Liverpool’s Andy Robertson.
