Dean has refereed the Blues a staggering 80 times, with City winning exactly 50% of the time and losing 26 times. He was last in charge of Pep Guardiola's side when they travelled to Villa Park in December – City won 2-1.


The 53-year-old has taken charge of City on many memorable occasions, including the 1-0 win over Manchester United in the 2011 FA Cup semi-final, the 6-0 demolition of Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea in 2019 and THAT game against QPR in May 2012.
