Premier League now announce who'll be the referee for Arsenal's clash with Everton this weekend

The Premier League have now announced who’ll be the referee for Arsenal’s clash with Everton this weekend. 

The Gunners fell to their first defeat of the new campaign on Sunday after a 3-1 loss to Manchester United. 

But there was a controversial moment very early on in the game as Gabriel Martinelli’s goal was ruled out

Referee Paul Tierney was advised by VAR to review a challenge by Martin Odegaard on Christian Eriksen in the build-up to the goal.

And the referee decided to overturn his on-field decision, much to the dismay of Arsenal fans.

Arsenal will be hoping for better luck this weekend after having a goal ruled out at Old Trafford. 

The last weekend of Premier League action was littered with controversial refereeing decisions. 

Newcastle United felt aggrieved after they had a goal chalked off against Crystal Palace. Joe Willock looked to have been pushed into the Palace goalkeeper, but VAR judged that it was a foul. 

West Ham United also had a last-minute equaliser cancelled out at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Similarly to the Newcastle incident, Jarod Bowen was judged to have fouled Edouard Mendy before Maxwel Cornet hammered home. 

Arsenal will have been disappointed to come away from Old Trafford with nothing after a decent display. The VAR decision could have had an impact on the game but Arteta’s men will be frustrated after dominating for large periods.
