Referee Martin Atkinson, who incorrectly ordered Jack Rodwell off in the Merseyside derby, will officiate between Stoke and Fulham.

The appointment was confirmed by the Premier League today, despite the widespread belief that Atkinson would be 'rested' following the FA's decision to overturn the red card he showed to the Everton midfielder.

Atkinson, who officiated between Turkey and Germany on Friday night, has issued seven red cards in his last 13 matches - earning himself the reputation of a referee not to be trifled with.

His last match in charge of Fulham will be fondly remembered as it ended in a rare 3-0 away win at Sunderland last April while Stoke fans will be all too aware that he took charge of their side in last season's FA Cup final defeat to Manchester City.
