The relatively unfamiliar face of Paul Tierney will take the whistle this Saturday when Manchester City host Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium.
This will be the second City appointment of the season for the Lancashire native after he officiated the 2-1 win over Southampton in November. Before that, he oversaw City’s 5-1 win over Huddersfield in an FA Cup fifth round replay last season.
He has also taken charge of one Newcastle game this season, a 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth at St. James’ Park also in November.
Full list of appointments for Manchester City vs. Newcastle:
Referee: Paul Tierney
Assistants: Simon Bennett, Marc Perry
Fourth official: Craig Pawson
