Anthony Taylor appointed as referee for Wolves vs Manchester City
After an impressive turnaround in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday evening, Manchester City turn their attention back to Premier League action as they travel to Wolverhampton for Saturday's 12:30 (BST) kick-off. The league has appointed Anthony Taylor as referee.
City haven't got a great recent record with Taylor in charge. The Blues haven't won in their last five matches with the 43-year-old in charge; losing to Spurs twice, Chelsea once and drawing 2-2 to both Liverpool and West Ham.
Despite the bad results, Taylor awarded City three penalties in the five games – two were missed, Sergio Aguero against Chelsea and Riyad Mahrez against West Ham.
Overall, Pep Guardiola's side have a record of 14 wins, six draws and seven losses in Premier League games officiated by the Wythenshawe-born referee.
So far this season, in all club competitions, Taylor has dished out 25 yellow cards, zero red cards, and awarded two penalties in seven games.
