Graham Scott appointed as referee for Manchester City vs Crystal Palace
After a midweek trip to Barcelona, City host Crystal Palace this weekend – the Premier League has appointed Graham Scott as the referee. The game kicks off at 3 pm BST and will not be broadcast live in the United Kingdom.
The last time Scott officiated the Blues was last August when Norwich City visited the Etihad and received a 5-0 thumping. In total, he's refereed the Blues eight times, with City winning seven of those, including the 2018 Carabao Cup semi-final against Bristol City at Aston Gate.
Scott officiated a 2-2 home draw against Palace in the 2019/20 season.
Last season, he dished out 79 yellows and four red cards in the 23 games he took charge of.
So far this campaign, the 54-year-old has refereed just two games, with both finishing goalless –Luton vs Birmingham and Brighton against Newcastle.
