Andre Marriner will referee the EFL Cup final between Manchester United and Southampton on February 26.
The EFL announced the appointment of the 46-year-old on Monday. He will be assisted by Richard West and Stuart Burt, with Kevin Friend as fourth official.
Marriner has been a Premier League official since 2004 and on FIFA’s panel since 2009.
Underdogs Southampton will be hoping the appointment of Marriner is a good omen; he refereed the 2013 FA Cup final, when Wigan stunned Manchester City 1-0 thanks to Ben Watson’s header.
