Mark Clattenburg will miss a fourth weekend of Barclays Premier League matches as Chelsea's complaint continues to hang over the referee.

The Football Association's investigation into Chelsea's allegation that Clattenburg used inappropriate language, understood to have been interpreted as racist, towards midfielder John Obi Mikel is still continuing and a decision is not now expected until later this week.

Clattenburg denies the accusation.
