The referee for this Sunday’s Manchester derby has been decided, and it’s going to be Howard Webb. That means that neither Manchester City nor Manchester United supporters will be satisfied as they both will argue that Webb favors the other side.
Hopefully Webb will be referee a good game so that the main talking points are the match itself, not the officiating.
