The Premier League has confirmed the match official appointments for the upcoming weekend action including Liverpool vs Manchester United and Southampton vs Arsenal.
Undoubtedly the biggest match of the weekend is at Anfield as top-of-the-table Liverpool entertain fierce rivals Manchester United on Sunday afternoon and experienced referee Martin Atkinson will be the man in charge.
Manchester City will be looking to reclaim top spot on Saturday when they play host to Everton in the early lunchtime kick off and Craig Pawson will oversee proceedings at the Etihad Stadium.
Later in the day, Tottenham Hotspur welcome Burnley to Wembley looking to for a win to maintain their place in the top four and Graham Scott will be the man in charge of that game.
Stuart Atwell will officiate Chelsea’s clash with Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Sunday afternoon while Chris Kavanagh will be the man in charge when Arsenal head to the south coast to take on Southampton at St Mary’s.
