Stuart Attwell is appointed referee for Manchester United vs Manchester City
Stuart Attwell will take charge of the Manchester Derby this weekend, as the Champions take the short trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United. The game will be played on Saturday the 14th of January, kicking off at 12:30pm (GMT) - it is available to watch on BT Sport.
Stuart Attwell has officiated 13 games this season, dishing out 54 yellow cards and 2 red cards. The last time Attwell took charge of a game involving Manchester City was at the back end of December, when the blues beat Leeds United 3-1 away from home.
Saturday will mark Manchester City’s 20th game with Attwell as referee, the blues have won 15 of the previous 19, only losing 3. The 40 year old has yet to officiate a Manchester Derby and no doubt there will be eyes closely watching his every decision.
