Simon Hooper will take charge of Manchester City's Carabao Cup clash with Chelsea.
The Premier League Champions face a challenging third round tie at the Etihad Stadium in midweek, with Graham Potter's side the visitors.
Manchester City have been incredibly successful in this competition in recent years, winning the Carabao Cup four times under Pep Guardiola.
The Sky Blues beat Chelsea on both occasions last season, with Gabriel Jesus scoring the winner at Stamford Bridge and Kevin De Bruyne at the Etihad Stadium.
The last time the two sides met outside of the Premier League was the UEFA Champions League Final in 2021, with Guardiola's side suffering an agonising 1-0 defeat.
Julian Alvarez gave the Blues the lead prior to Andreas Pereira converting a penalty for the Cottagers.
Ahead of Wednesday's meeting in the third round of the Carabao Cup, the Match Officials for the tie have been announced.
Simon Hooper will take charge of proceedings at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Hooper has taken charge of nine games so far this season, showing 26 yellow cards and no red cards.
The referee last officiated City in September, when the Blues drew 1-1 with Aston Villa in the Midlands.
Hooper will be accompanied at the Etihad Stadium by Assistant Referees Darren Cann and Adrian Holmes.
Paul Tierney has been appointed as the Fourth Official.
The referee will be overseeing conduct within the two dugouts, and the behaviour of managers Pep Guardiola and Graham Potter.
