Clattenburg has been put in charge of the meeting between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium for his first Premier League appointment since sending off Jose Mourinho and Ander Herrera at Old Trafford.

Mourinho, who has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association after allegedly using abusive and/or insulting words toward an official in the tunnel at half-time, appeared to be frustrated at Clattenburg’s decision not to award Matteo Darmian a penalty.

Herrera was later shown a second yellow card in controversial circumstances as he was deemed to have brought down Dean Marney but appeared to have slipped.

Clattenburg regularly takes charge of high-profile fixtures and refereed the FA Cup final, Champions League final and European Championship final in 2016.
