Manchester United fans have been reacting to the news that Mike Dean will officiate their fixture against Chelsea FC in the Premier League.

It is set to be one of the toughest tests of the season when Jose Mourinho’s men travel to face Chelsea FC on October 20.

Manchester Utd are already seven points adrift of his former side in the Premier League and need to avoid defeat if they are to begin to salvage their poor start to the new campaign.

However, some fans believe United have already been handed a setback heading into the clash at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

That is after the Premier League announced referee Mike Dean will officiate the clash on Saturday lunchtime.

Dean has issued three red cards in six Premier League games this season, including one for Nemanja Matic against Watford.

Although the Serbian warranted his sending off during the victory at Vicarage Road, United supporters are worried the referee could influence the manner of the result.
