Arsenal and Chelsea fans are breathing a sign of relief after the refereeing appointments were confirmed for the upcoming weekend of Premier League fixtures…
The Premier League have announced the refereeing appointments for this weekend’s games and it’s safe to say Arsenal fans will be pleased to see Mike Dean won’t be in charge of their match against Leicester City.
Gunners fans have started a petition to try and prevent Dean from refereeing any more of their matches after he failed to send Diego Costa off for his elbow on Laurent Koscielny during Chelsea’s controversial 2-0 win on Saturday afternoon.
The long-serving ref instead decided to send Gabriel from the field for his petulant kick-out at the Blues striker following a fracas just before half-time when the scores were at 0-0.
The FA have since charged Costa with violent conduct while Gabriel has also been charged for improper conduct for his behaviour following his dismissal.
Dean hasn’t been demoted by the Premier League as he’ll still be in charge of a game this weekend, but thankfully for Arsenal fans it will be Craig Pawson in the middle when they take on Leicester at the King Power.
Mark Clattenburg has bee chosen to take charge of the big game involving Spurs and Manchester City while Jonathan Moss will be the man in black when Liverpool entertain Aston Villa at Anfield.
Mike Jones has been appointed Manchester United’s clash with Sunderland at Old Trafford while Martin Atkinson will take charge of Chelsea’s trip to Newcastle.
