Confirmed Match Officials: Manchester City vs Wolves (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Craig Pawson will take charge of Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday evening.

Manchester City take on the first of their final four matches in the Premier League this weekend, knowing that should they manage to retain their recent 100 per cent record in the division, they will be crowned champions.

Pep Guardiola and his players are aiming to become the first side in Premier League history to win the division in four successive campaigns, while an FA Cup final is also being looked forward to at the end of the domestic season.

The meeting with Wolves will be followed by visits to Fulham and Tottenham in successive matches, before the final day of the campaign will see David Moyes’ West Ham side visit the Etihad Stadium.

City come into the meeting with Wolves with a fully-fit squad expected to be at the disposal of Pep Guardiola, with Ederson avoiding any serious problems after injury last weekend, whilst Phil Foden and Ruben Dias have overcome illness in the past week.

Ahead of Saturday evening’s clash between Manchester City and Wolves, the Premier League have confirmed all the information surrounding the team of match officials to take charge of the contest at the Etihad Stadium.
