It’s been a poor start to the 20222/2023 season for Manchester City, with their display against Liverpool being one that they would be in a hurry to forget.
With just a few days away from their first premier league game of the season, Manchester City will be careful not to begin the season on the same foot they started last season: losing their first two matches. Pep Guardiola’s team gifted Leicester City the Community Shield and lost their opener to Tottenham, all by a slender one goal margin. Despite going on to win the Premier league title in the same season, they will be hoping to start off strongly to avoid final day drama as they hope to retain their EPL title.
Manchester City will be hoping to crush West Ham United to the last bone as they collide at the London Stadium this coming Sunday. The Cityzens may however have to work harder and smarter as Sunday’s match may be likened to treading on thin ice.
The EPL have officially announced that Micheal Oliver will officiate the match, and Mike Dean; in charge of Virtual Assistance.
This isn’t the kind of news that City fans will be buzzing to hear as both referees are notable for taking controversial decisions on the pitch. The Sky Blues have often been affected by such decisions, one of which is their 3-1 defeat at the Anfield in the season that saw rivals Liverpool win their first premier league title in 30 years.
Bearing in mind the officials in charge of the game, the Cityzens will know the nature of game to expect. They may have to work every muscle and sweat right up to the nail if they are to come out victorious
