Kevin Friend has been named the match referee for the Eagles game at Wembley against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, kick-off 12noon.
Leicester-based Friend has been a member of the Select Group of referees since the 2009/10 season, after a successful career outside of the top-flight.
Prior to his appearance in the Premier League, he was regularly officiating in the Championship.
This season he has taken charge of ten matches, five in the top flight including Palace’s game at Anfield in August.
During this campaign he has shown 26 yellow cards and one red in those ten matches.
