Good and Bad Referrees
- Neil Swarbrick and Paul Tierney were joint referees of the week, both with no wrong and two right decisions – well done to both of them
- Craig Pawson was the worst referee of the week with four wrong decisions and none correct
Games where we believe the referees affected the outcome of the matches
- Everton v Arsenal – should have been a win for Arsenal instead of a win for Everton
- Crystal Palace v Man United – should have been a win for Palace rather than a win for United
9 Players who should have had straight red cards
- Long – Southampton
- Lowton and Mee – Burnley
- Taylor – Swansea
- Davies – Hull
- Rojo and Ibrahimović – United
- Jagielka and McCarthy – Everton
The player who should have had a second yellow card was
- Martin De Roon – Middlesbrough
Most favoured and worst done by
Arsenal continue to be the team most affected by wrong decisions against with 31. Also at the ‘wrong’ end of this table are Bournemouth and West Ham (both with 25) and palace, Liverpool and Man City (each with 21)
The teams with most decisions in their favour are United (31) Spurs (25), Watford (23) and Leicester (21).
In terms of points Man United have benefited most having 11 points more than they should, Watford are 7 points better off. Bournemouth have been robbed the most and should have 10 points more than they have closely followed by Arsenal with 9.
For Hull and Sunderland so far it all balances out and their points total is correct.
