Graham Scott will take charge of on-the-field matters when Manchester City return to action against West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday 9th February.
Manchester City will be looking to pick up some much needed confidence ahead of the Premier League’s inaugural winter break, as consecutive defeats against Manchester United and Tottenham in recent days have certainly raised a few doubts regarding the capabilities of Pep Guardiola’s squad.
Graham Scott (52) will be the man in the middle in Manchester on Sunday afternoon, supported by Neil Davies and Richard West as assistant referees. Touchline matters have been affiliated to Chris Kavanagh.
Scott will be taking charge of his 7th 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 towards the end of last month – the frustrating 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium.
As for the Video Assistant Referees, they will be manned by Craig Pawson (VAR) and Constantine Hatzidakis (Assistant VAR).
Match referee Scott will take charge of his 15th Premier League fixture of the season when Manchester City take on West Ham. So far, Scott has handed out 43 yellow cards in his previous 14 matches, awarding one penalty, and sending off three players for second-bookable offences.
