Referee appointed for Chelsea vs. Manchester City (8/12/2018)

The familiar face of Michael Oliver will be in charge this Saturday for the big game of the weekend between Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

33-year-old Oliver has already had two City games this season – both away from home – and the Blues will hope for a similar outcome on Saturday.

City beat Arsenal at the Emirates on the opening weekend of the season under Oliver’s watch, and he was also in charge when Pep Guardiola’s men thrashed Cardiff City in September.

It will be Oliver’s second Chelsea game of the season after he was tasked with their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace in early November.

Full list of appointments for Chelsea vs. Manchester City (8/12/2018):

Referee: Michael Oliver
Assistants: Stuart Burt, Simon Bennett
Fourth official: Andre Marriner
