The 47-year-old took charge of the final Premier League game of the 2017/18 season (Southampton 0-1 City). On that occasion, Ederson and Gabriel Jesus went into the official’s bad book.

Wednesday 27 December 2017

The home team, Newcastle parked the bus behind a fortified fence, and yet City managed to break their defense down with a 1-0 win at St James’ Park.

On that occasion, no MCFC player upset Mariner enough for him to show a card. However, one Magpie did!

How many cards will Mr. Marriner show on Sunday?
