Referee appointed for Southampton vs. Manchester City (13/5/2018)

It is a date best remembered for the greatest moment in Manchester City and Premier League history when Sergio Aguero scored the legendary title-winning goal against QPR, but on 13 May 2018, six years to the day since 93:20, City finish the season again.

The Blues travel to Southampton, who are now essentially safe from relegation, meaning it will be a more relaxed affair than it might have been. Even so, Mark Hughes will be looking to one-up his former side in front of the Saints faithful.

The referee for City’s finale to a double-winning season has been named, with Andre Marriner set to take charge at St Mary’s.

City have had a mixed record under 47-year-old Marriner this season, with away wins in the league against Newcastle and Arsenal, but a 4-3 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield in January.

Interestingly, Marriner officiated two of the same away days for Southampton, with his only two appointments for them being away defeats to Newcastle and Arsenal.

Full list of appointments for Southampton vs. Manchester City:

Referee: Andre Marriner
Assistants: Simon Long, Richard West
Fourth official: Mike Dean
