Mike Dean appointed as referee for Aston Villa vs Manchester City
Mike Dean will take charge of Manchester City's trip to Villa Park on Wednesday 1st December on Matchday 14 of the Premier League season.
Aston Villa vs Manchester City will be Dean's first game in charge of City this season, with his last refereeing duties over the Blues coming back in April for the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, where City lost 1-0. He has refereed City 17 times in the Premier League under Guardiola. A record of 10 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses (all of which were away fixtures), and plenty of interesting (to say the least!) calls along the way.
Referee: Mike Dean
Assistants: Ian Hussin and Darren Cann
Fourth Official: Peter Bankes
VAR: Kevin Friend
Assistant VAR: Simon Bennett
