Andre Marriner has been appointed to referee the Barclays Premier League derby between Manchester City and Manchester United next Monday.
City's official website confirmed the news that the 41-year-old from Sheldon in the West Midlands will take charge of what is a decisive game in the title race at the Etihad Stadium.
City trail United by three points going into the game but with a superior goal difference, knowing a win would put them in control of their bid to win the title.
