Mark Clattenburg will referee the derby between Manchester United and Manchester City on Saturday.
The 41-year-old, who has officiated in the Premier League for more than a decade, completed an unprecedented refereeing hat-trick in top finals last season.
The County Durham-born referee was the man in the middle for the FA Cup, Champions League and European Championship finals.
Clattenburg has also refereed the Manchester derby at Old Trafford for the past two seasons.
United prevailed at home in the 2014/15 campaign with a 4-2 victory on April 12, 2015, while last term’s game ended in a goalless draw on October 25, 2015.
Clattenburg’s assistants at Old Trafford will be Jake Collin and Steve Bennett while Mike Dean will act as fourth official.
