Arsenal fans were devastated to learn that that Mike Dean has been selected to officiate the game between Tottenham and Arsenal this coming Sunday.
The Gunners faithful believe that Mike Dean has always turned the game in favour of the team playing against them.
During an Arsenal vs Spurs game three seasons ago, Mike Dean was accused of celebrating a goal when Luis Saha, who then play for Tottenham, scored. Apart from this, he was also accused of favouring Chelsea when Arsenal met them earlier this season, despite the 0-0 score line.
When fans knew who the referee was going to be, they took to Twitter to voice their concern…
