Paul Tierney appointed as referee for Bournemouth vs Manchester City
Following a disappointing draw on Wednesday night, Manchester City head to the south coast to face a struggling Bournemouth side this Saturday. Paul Tierney has been put in charge of the 17:30 (GMT) fixture, which can be watched on Sky Sports for UK viewers.
The experienced 42-year-old will take charge of his 20th Premier League game of the season this weekend.
City, along with Watford, are his most refereed club, with him officiating 25 games for the Blues across the years; his most recent being the 1-0 victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup. Within those games, he is yet to give a red card but has dished out 32 yellows.
In terms of cards this season, he has handed out 64 yellows across 19 games in the Premier League – averaging 3.4 yellows a game – along with two red cards.
