Card happy Hungarian Referee, Viktor Kassai will officiate second leg against FC Barcelona

Hungarian Referee Viktor Kassai will Officiate our home leg at the Etihad vs FC Barcelona

Kassai previously officiated our game against FC Bayern Munich in the 2011/12 Champions League Group Stage, at home to Bayern and the German National Teams, Allianz Arena.

He was guilty of not awarding Manchester City two stone wall penalties against the Bavarian's, handing out a count of 4 yellow cards to Manchester City and 0 to Bayern Munich despite the fact they committed 11 fouls.

Joe Hart put up a valiant performance to keep the scoreline to a respectable 2-0, this was the same game where there was confusion on the bench and Carlos Tevez refused to play. A night I hoped to forget but it doesn't seem so now, seeing as the same card happy referee is officiating our next game.

But since that night, just like we've beaten FC Bayern Munich, we can also beat FC Barcelona, our lads just have to keep their heads and play Barcelona at their own game literally.

More recently Viktor Kassai dealt out 2 red cards in a game between Arsenal and PSG for Arsenal's Giroud and PSG's Verratti for some push and shoves, in fact if he saw red cards were fit then two of PSG's players should have been sent off.

I personally think they all should have seen yellow and a good telling off, reds were overboard so we need to be on our best behaviour if we're going to beat Barca and a 12th man.

His team will be fellow Hungarian Assistants Gyorgy Ring, Vencel Toth and Fourth Official Peter Berettyan.

Everton have come at the wrong time for Manchester City, don't need another Injury

The Everton game couldn't have come at a more badly timed stage of the season for Manchester City, Everton have a track record of injuring our players and getting away with it. With Aguero's glass knee, De Bruyne and Vinny only just back from injury, both Zabaleta and Sagna out injured, Everton's careless physical game isn't what we need right now.

In 2014 Everton players sandwiched Aguero, Coleman fouled Aguero and Besic shoved Aguero to the ground, but what this video doesn't show is a poor tackle by Gareth Barry moments before. All Everton players got away with zero cautions or bookings. It's Besic who should have been punished for the shove which led to Aguero's injury.

In 2016 Kevin De Bruyne was injured against Everton, again the Everton player Funes Mori didn't get cautioned or booked.

Going to be a tough game, especially seeing as they are a new Everton under new boss Ronald Koeman.

Evertons players that our guys should watch out for are Gareth Barry, Ramiro Funes Mori and Muhamed Bešić.

Good luck lads, hoping you all come out of it injury free.
