Revealed: The man who will referee Liverpool v Manchester City

Premier League

The Premier League have announced who will take charge of Liverpool and Manchester City showdown.

Mark Clattenburg will referee this weekend's potential Premier League title decider between Liverpool and Manchester City.

Brendan Rodgers' side will welcome the 2012 champions to Anfield for Sunday's encounter as they look to provide some breathing space between themselves and Manuel Pellegrini's charges at the table's summit.

The clash will be overseen by Clattenburg, who has a lengthy history of officiating both teams.

In the 17 Liverpool games that the County Durham official has presided over, they have won seven, drawn five and lost three. Their most recent meeting with him was during last month's 3-0 win over Manchester United, when he awarded three penalties to the visitors at Old Trafford.

He was also in charge for their League Cup final triumph in 2012, against Cardif City, and infamously their victory in the 2007 Merseyside derby with Everton, for which he remains vilified by the Goodison Park crowd for a series of dubious decisions during the Reds' 2-1 win.

Of the 28 City games Clattenburg has overseen, they have won 18, drawn eight and lost just two. Arguably his most famous encounter in charge of the Eastlands outfit was their 6-1 drubbing of United in October 2011. Their most recent meeting was a 3-0 win over Swansea last December.

Do you think Clattenburg is the right man to oversee Sunday's game?
