Mark Clattenburg has been appointed referee for this Saturday’s Manchester derby at Old Trafford.
The 41-year-old has regularly been given this marquee game in recent years and oversaw the same fixture last season, a 0-0 bore draw at Old Trafford. The season before last, he also had the Old Trafford fixture, which saw United record their first derby win over City since 2012.
And it was Clattenberg who oversaw arguably the most memorable Manchester derby of recent times, the 6-1 drubbing in 2011.

Referee: Mark Clattenburg
