The FA have opted to not hand the County Durham official a match for the coming weekend as the investigation into his alleged racist remarks gathers apace.

The referee is accused of racially abusing Chelsea pair John Obi Mikel and Juan Mata towards the end of yesterday’s explosive Stamford Bridge encounter.

The Metropolitan Police will also launch an investigation into an incident in which a steward was injured at Stamford Bridge.

It occurred as Javier Hernandez celebrated United’s winning goal in the 75th minute.
