United will head to south London looking to extend their unbeaten run to five games on the back of an 11-day rest following their 4-0 home win over Tottenham Hotspur, with Bramall's appointment for the match now confirmed.

Bramall has been part of Select Group 1 - the top rank for referees in England - since 2022, having been promoted from the EFL earlier that year for his top flight debut.

The 34-year-old first became an EFL referee ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, before an anterior cruciate ligament injury curtailed his progress the following summer.

Last season, the Sheffield-born official took charge of two fixtures in Japan's J1 League - Gamba Osaka's 2-2 draw with Consadole Sapporo and Urawa Red Diamonds' 3-0 win at Kashiwa Reysol - and this term, he has overseen two games involving Eddie Howe's side, both coming in the Premier League. Bramall refereed the Magpies' 2-0 home win over Burnley in September 2023, and also the 4-4 draw against Luton Town in February, also at St. James' Park.
