Michael Oliver has been appointed as the referee for Sunday's home fixture against West Ham United on Matchday 13 of the Premier League season.

MICHAEL OLIVER

Oliver returns for his third time in charge of a City game this season and first one at the Etihad Stadium, last officiating the Blues in the Manchester derby earlier this month. Widely considered England's best referee, City have a strong home record when Oliver's the man in the middle, having only lost twice. He, coincidentally also took charge of West Ham's last visit to the Etihad Stadium in March of this year, a 2-1 win.
