Mark Clattenburg will referee at Stamford Bridge on Sunday for the first time since he was cleared of abusing John Obi Mikel.

Chelsea complained about Clattenburg's "inappropriate language" to Mikel in the wake of a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United in October.

A subsequent Football Association investigation cleared the official, who said it was "truly frightening" to think his career could have been jeopardised.

Chelsea later expressed "regret" at their handling of the complaint and, six months on, Clattenburg will take charge of their Premier League game against Swansea.
