Andre Marriner appointed as referee for Norwich City vs Manchester City
Andre Marriner has been given refereeing duties for this Saturday's clash between Pep Guardiola's Manchester City and Norwich City in the Premier League at Carrow Road (17:30 GMT kick-off).
One of the more experienced referees in the league, Marriner has refereed City a staggering 55 times but has only dished out three red cards. Despite that he's only been in charge of the Blues once this season - a 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace in which Aymeric Laporte was given a red card.
Other memorable appointments are the 4-3 loss away at Liverpool in January 2018, the crucial 2-0 away victory at Old Trafford towards the end of the 2018/19 title race and City's loss against Leeds at home last season. The 51-year-old has dished out 45 cards so far this season, two of them being red, and has awarded four penalties in all competitions.
