DAVID COOTE


For what will be only his third time as the man in the middle for a Manchester City game, this match is Coote's first time refereeing the Champions this season. A relatively new referee to the Premier League, Coote's only other fixtures involving a 'Big 6' club have been Watford v Chelsea and Wolves v Chelsea this season. His previous times refereeing City were routine wins in the Premier League last season; away in May to Crystal Palace (2-0) and Sheffield United at home earlier in January (1-0).
