Referee appointed for Manchester City vs. Chelsea (30.09.2017)

One of the Premier League’s most experienced referees has been handed the whistle for this Saturday’s big game between Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

46-year-old Martin Atkinson, a veteran of the game, has been named referee for the televised fixture in what will be his first City appointment since the 0-0 bore draw against Manchester United in late April at the Etihad.

Prior to that, he was in charge as City beat Sunderland 2-0 in April and was also the man in the middle for City’s 2-1 win over Arsenal just before Christmas.

For Chelsea, Atkinson was the referee as they beat Tottenham 4-2 at Wembley in last season’s FA Cup semi-final round, and was also in charge as Antonio Conte’s beat Arsenal 3-1 in the Premier League in February.

Full list of appointments for Chelsea vs. Manchester City:

Referee: Martin Atkinson
Assistants: Lee Betts, Stephen Child
Fourth official: Andre Marriner
