Referee Mark Clattenburg will not discover the outcome of the Football Association's investigation into a complaint by Chelsea against the match official until next week.
The timing of the decision means that Clattenburg could now miss a fourth weekend of matches even if the FA announces that no action will be taken.
The Professional Game Match Officials (PGMO) announces the list of referees for the following weekend's matches on Monday and previously Clattenburg has opted out of officiating while the case is still going on.
