Chelsea were the big winners this weekend as they took advantage of none of their close title rivals playing a league fixture to open up a seven point gap at the top of the table.

The Blues ran out 4-0 winners over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, but the game wasn’t without it’s controversial moments.

Referee Micheal Olivier was at the center of a number of contentious calls throughout the course of the game. The first came within the opening five minutes when Samuel Eto’o was taken out by Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris when clean through on goal, only for a Spurs free kick to be awarded as the striker was deemed to be offside. However, replays showed Eto’o was in fact just onside.

If Chelsea were unlucky with that call, they got the rub of the green when Olivier then decided to award the home side a penalty in the second half and send Spurs defender Younes Kaboul off for an apparent foul on Eto’o in the area. However, again replays showed the referee may have got the decision wrong.

These are just two examples of several contentious decisions that were made by referees up and down the country this weekend that went a long way to determining the outcome of a game, so it’s no wonder fans are keen to know who’ll be officiating their teams upcoming fixtures.

We have a ‘Super Sunday’ coming up this weekend and Arsenal fans may be disappointed to learn that the Premier League have confirmed this afternoon that Mike Dean will be in charge of their clash with north London rivals Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

In the weekend’s other big games Mark Clattenburg has been selected to take charge of Manchester United’s huge game against Liverpool, Chris Foy will oversee Chelsea’s clash with Cardiff while Lee Mason will be in charge at Hull as they take on Manchester City.
