Anthony Taylor appointed referee for West Ham vs Manchester City
Wythenshawe born referee Anthony Taylor has been assigned to take charge of Manchester City's next Premier League fixture as the current champions travel to the London Stadium to face West Ham United. The game will take place on Sunday the 15th of May and kicks off at 14:00 (BST). The game is available to watch on Sky Sports Main Event/Premier League.
Anthony Taylor will officiate his 27th Premier League fixture involving Manchester City this Sunday. The Blues have won 15 of those games, drawn five and lost the remaining six. The 43-year-old last refereed City back in April when they drew to Liverpool in a potentially season-defining fixture. The last time he refereed this fixture, City drew 1-1 at the London Stadium back in October of the 2020/21 season – a game which was held behind closed doors. City are yet to lose a game against the Hammers in which Taylor has been in charge.
Taylor has brandished 90+ yellows and five red cards in his 25 Premier League appearances this season. In the three games he has officiated involving City, they have not won one. Hopefully, that can change this Sunday.
