Referee Mark Clattenburg will not referee a Premier League match for the fourth consecutive weekend, reports SkySports.
An inquiry into an incident during Chelsea's 3-2 defeat to Manchester United on 28 October is still ongoing, and the 37-year-old Clattenburg has not been allowed to officiate since the clash at Stamford Bridge.
The FA has interviewed several Chelsea players, as well as Clattenburg, the two assistant referees Michael McDonough and Simon Long and fourth official Michael Jones.
An independent QC is studying all the evidence in close detail before recommending a decision.
