The officials have been announced for Watford’s next two Premier League matches as they bid to build on their memorable 4-1 victory over Manchester United on Saturday.

Graham Scott is set to officiate Sunday’s trip to Leicester City when Claudio Ranieri returns to the club where he famously won the Premier League title.

The Oxfordshire official has been in charge of one other Watford game this season, and it also ended in a memorable outcome as the Hornets triumphed 5-2 at Everton.

Scott has refereed eight matches in the current campaign, including five in the top flight, and shown a total of 29 yellow cards and three reds – all coming in a 1-1 draw between Colchester United and Bristol Rovers in League Two last month.

Darren Cann and Nick Hopton are due to be the assistants on Sunday, with Andy Madley fourth official. Martin Atkinson will be on VAR duties, assisted by Richard West.

Hopton is again scheduled to be one of the assistants when Watford return to Vicarage Road to face Chelsea on Wednesday, December 1.

David Coote is due to be the referee for the clash with the Premier League leaders, with Stuart Burt his other assistant.

The Nottinghamshire official has also taken charge of eight matches this season, six of which have been in the top flight, and dished out 34 yellow cards and two reds.

Michael Salisbury is scheduled to be on fourth official duties for the 7.30pm kick-off, with VAR Darren England and assistant VAR Wade Smith.
