Tim Robinson will take charge of Manchester City’s Premier League clash against Luton Town on Saturday afternoon.
Manchester City travel to Kenilworth Road in dismal form, winless since early November and potentially nine points behind league leaders Arsenal, after Pep Guardiola’s side slipped to four Premier League matches without a win.
Leon Bailey’s 74th minute deflected strike inflicted Manchester City’s third league loss of the season, as Aston Villa leapfrogged the Blues in the Premier League table and moved to within two points of second place Liverpool.
Manchester City were without trio Rodri, Jack Grealish and Jeremy Doku for Wednesday’s defeat, as Guardiola’s side created just two chances at Villa Park – 20 less than the home side.
The treble-winners travel to newly-promoted Luton, who suffered an injury-time defeat to Arsenal in midweek, losing 4-3 after Declan Rice’s last-gasp header.
Manchester City haven’t played Luton since 1999, with Rob Edwards’ side currently 17th in the table with just two wins all season.
