Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg faces another round of matches without a match to officiate.

Mark Clattenburg will not officiate a Premier League match for the fourth weekend in succession, it has been confirmed.

The decision has been taken because the Football Association's investigation into allegations that he used inappropriate and racist language towards Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel during his side's 3-2 loss to Manchester United last month is still ongoing.

The Metropolitan Police, who were also made aware of the incident by the Society of Black Lawyers, last week decided that there was no case to answer.

Reports have claimed that the FA will reveal their findings this coming Wednesday.

If found not guilty, Clattenburg is expected to return to work next weekend.
