Manchester United vs Crystal Palace: Premier League announce referee

Martin Atkinson has been named as the match referee for Saturday’s game against Crystal Palace.

According to the Premier League’s official website, he will be joined by linesmen Lee Betts and Peter Kirkup, as well as fourth official Robert Jones.

Jonathan Moss and Marc Perry will be in charge of VAR.

Atkinson was in charge of Everton’s win over Tottenham Hotspur last week.

Manchester United will be aiming to get their Premier League off to a flying start with three points against Roy Hodgson’s side, especially after their convincing start to the campaign beating Southampton 1-0.

Former United attacker Wilfried Zaha scored last weekend and it’s a huge surprise that he’s still playing his football at Selhurst Park.

The winger is a constant threat but we’ve got a couple of players like that.

It’s Donny van de Beek’s first opportunity to make his competitive debut in a Manchester United shirt. There is plenty of excitement around that and hopefully Bruno Fernandes will be fit enough for selection.

Stay tuned for our match preview later this week!
