Mark Clattenburg will miss another weekend of Premier League matches but the outcome of the investigation into Chelsea's complaint against referee should be known by the end of the week.

The Barclays Premier League has announced its list of match officials for the coming fixtures and for the third weekend running Clattenburg is omitted.

The Football Association are investigating allegations from Chelsea that the 37-year-old official used a term understood to have been interpreted as racist towards John Obi Mikel during the Premier League match against Manchester United on 28 October.
