MARK Clattenburg will officiate in the Premier League again this weekend after being removed from the list for two breaches of protocol.

The 39-year-old, from County Durham, was due to referee Leicester’s 1-0 home defeat by West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

But he was withdrawn from the game and replaced by Stuart Attwell after it emerged he drove to the Hawthorns on his own the previous week and spoke to Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock without the presence of his fellow match officials, contrary to PGMOL practice.

Clattenburg will be in the middle for Burnley’s clash with Hull City at Turf Moor on 8 November, with Simon Beck and Jake Collin his assistants while Andre Marriner shall be the fourth official.

The appointment comes on the same day the Fifa whistler was selected to take charge of Tuesday’s Champions League group stage tie between Malmo and Atletico Madrid.
