Graham Scott will take charge of on-the-field matters when Manchester City return to action against Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday 18th January.
Manchester City will be looking to build on back-to-back demolition missions against Manchester United and Aston Villa in recent days, as they return from their week-long rest to take on Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace.
Graham Scott (52) will be the man in the middle in Manchester on Saturday afternoon, supported by Neil Davies and Derik Eaton as assistant referees. Touchline matters have been affiliated to Jeremy Simpson.
Scott will be taking charge of his 6th match involving Manchester City, since his first appearance in a game involving the blues in 2017. The select group one match official, who is relatively fresh to the top-flight of English football, last officiated a game involving the champions in the Premier League back at the end of October – the comfortable 3-0 victory over Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium.
As for the Video Assistant Referees, they will be manned by John Brooks (VAR) and Adam Nunn (Assistant VAR).
Match referee Scott will take charge of his 14th Premier League fixture of the season when Manchester City take on Crystal Palace. So far, Scott has handed out 40 yellow cards in his previous 13 matches, awarding one penalty, and sending off three players for second-bookable offences.
