Referee Mark Clattenburg will miss a fourth successive weekend of Premier League action as the Football Association continues an investigation into 'racism' allegations against the official.
Chelsea complained to the FA the referee used a term understood to have been interpreted as racist towards Nigeria international John Obi Mikel during the 3-2 Premier League defeat by Manchester United on October 28.
Last week British police dropped their own separate enquiry into the incident, sparked by a complaint from the Society of Black Lawyers.
A police statement said: "No victims have come forward... Without a victim and/or any evidence that any offence has been committed, the matter cannot currently be investigated."
