Confirmed Match Officials: Man City vs Leeds United (Premier League)

Paul Tierney will take charge of Manchester City against Leeds United at the Etihad Stadium next Tuesday, the Premier League have announced this week.

City suffered a 2-1 defeat to Leeds United in this fixture last season, as two goals from Stuart Dallas inflicted a surprise loss back in April. 

The Blues have won just one of the last five meetings in all competitions against the Yorkshire based club, with Pep Guardiola unable to overcome Marcelo Bielsa on both occasions last season. 

However, although Manchester City find themselves competing once again at the top of the table, Leeds find themselves situated in 15th, with just one win in their last five Premier League matches. 

The two sides, who first faced each other in 1924, have only played one another on ten occasions this century. 

In anticipation of the 107th match between the two sides, the Premier League has announced which match officials will be involved in Tuesday nights game.
