Mike Dean will take charge of on-the-field matters when Manchester City return to Premier League action, with a trip to the capital to face Tottenham Hotspur next on the agenda.
Manchester City have been left in a rather interesting situation going into Sunday’s clash, following the midweek defeat to Manchester United. Pep Guardiola’s side fell to defeat by a one-goal margin to their city rivals for the second time this campaign, although did secure their place in their third consecutive Carabao Cup final.
Mike Dean (51) will be the man in the middle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon, supported by Ian Hussin and Dan Robathan as assistant referees. Touchline matters have been affiliated to Graham Scott.
Dean will be taking charge of his 73rd match involving Manchester City, since his first appearance in a game involving the blues in November 2000. The Wirrall-born match official’s most recent game involving the current Premier League champions was the 3-1 victory against Manchester United in the first-leg of the Carabao Cup Semi-Final at Old Trafford.
As for the Video Assistant Referees, they will be manned by Kevin Friend (VAR) and Harry Lennard (Assistant VAR).
Match referee Dean will take charge of his 19th Premier League fixture of the season when Manchester City take on Tottenham Hotspur. So far, Dean has handed out 80 yellow cards in his previous 18 matches in the competition, awarding four penalties and dismissing players on two occasions – both for second-bookable offences.
