Roger East has been named as the man in the middle when Stoke visit Louis van Gaal`s Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorrow night.

The 50-year-old referee was promoted to the Premier League select group of referee`s in 2013.

East`s biggest fixture to date was the 2012 League One play-off final between Sheff Utd and Huddersfield at Wembley Stadium.

He has been in charge of 14 fixtures so far this season, handing out 42 yellow cards and no red cards at an average of 3 cards per game.

The Wiltshire FA has been in charge of Stoke once this season; their 0-0 draw at Newcastle United. He handed out four yellow cards; three yellows being handed to Stoke players over the fixture.

East has yet to be in charge of Manchester United this season. In fact, the referee has never taken charge of a game involving the Red Devils.

D Cann and M McDonough are East`s assistant referees.
