While Arsenal’s recent record under Kevin Friend (the referee for tonight’s Carabao Cup clash) might not be the best, Gunners fans will be pretty happy with the appointment of Lee Mason for this weekend’s Premier League clash against Sheffield United. Mason will be assisted by Mark Scholes and Timothy Wood, with Robert Jones set to serve as the fourth official.
The Gunners have a fabulous record under Mason- they’ve lost only three out of 29 with him in the middle, and have never lost a home game when he’s had the whistle.
Arsenal last five matches at home with Lee Mason in charge
Arsenal 4-0 Newcastle (19/20 season)
Arsenal 4-1 West Ham (17/18 season)
Arsenal 2-1 Swansea (17/18 season)
Arsenal 3-1 Stoke (16/17 season)
Arsenal 0-0 Southampton (15/16 season)
In comparison to the Gunners, Sheffield United are on a five game losing streak under Mason. What’s worse, the Blades were scoreless in each of those five games. Continue reading “Referee announced for Sheffield United league clash | Arsenal have never lost a home game under him!”
