LONDON (AP) — Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg will resume officiating duties this weekend after being cleared of allegations that he racially abused a Chelsea player during a match.

Clattenburg will be the fourth official for Tottenham's home match against West Ham on Sunday, and will take charge of Wednesday's match between Southampton and Norwich at St. Mary's Stadium.

The announcement Friday came a day after the English Football Association said Clattenburg had no case to answer after being accused by Chelsea midfielder Ramires of saying "shut up you monkey" to teammate John Obi Mikel during an Oct. 28 Premier League match against Manchester United.

Clattenburg hasn't refereed since the incident.
