Referee Andre Marriner has been given the important job of officiating this weekend’s big Premier League clash between leaders Manchester City and fourth placed Liverpool at Anfield.
It will be perhaps the biggest threat to an incredible unbeaten run in the league for Pep Guardiola’s men that now goes back over NINE months, with the Blues having not won at Liverpool’s ground since May 2003, when a last minute Nicolas Anelka goal gave them a 2-1 win.
For City, it will be Marriner’s second appointment of the season after he had the whistle in their narrow 1-0 win over Newcastle at St. James’ Park in late December.
He has taken charge of two Liverpool games this season, their 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Spurs in October and more recently their 4-0 win away at Bournemouth in mid-December.
Full list of appointments for Liverpool vs. Manchester City:
Referee: Andre Marriner
Assistants: Scott Ledger, Richard West
Fourth official: Mike Dean
