Watford will be hoping for a very different outcome when Jonathan Moss returns to Vicarage Road to take charge of their Premier League clash with Manchester United on Saturday.

Moss officiated the Hornets for the first time this season when they were thrashed 5-0 by Liverpool in Claudio Ranieri’s first game at the helm a month ago.

The Premier League has announced the appointment of Moss for the resumption of the top-flight season after the international break when the Hornets will be bidding to recover from consecutive league defeats and add to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's problems at Old Trafford.

The West Yorkshire official has refereed ten games this season, seven of which have been in the Premier League, and has so far shown a total of 21 yellow cards and one red.

Moss is due to be assisted by Marc Perry and Timothy Wood, with Dean Whitestone the fourth official for the 3pm kick off. David Coote is due to be VAR, with Nick Hopton assistant VAR.
