Ref watch: Pawson to officiate against Gunners


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Craig Pawson will be the man in the middle this weekend, as Arsenal travel to Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

The meeting is the first between the sides this season, with the Cherries running out 2-1 winners at Vitality Stadium in 2017-18.

Pawson has taken charge of eight top flight fixtures this season, handing out 38 yellow cards, three red cards and awarding four penalties.

The 39-year-old also officiated the Cherries’ 4-2 win over Leicester City earlier in the campaign, with Ryan Fraser, Joshua King and Adam Smith all on the scoresheet that afternoon.

On Sunday, Pawson will be assisted by Ian Hussin and Richard West, with David Coote the fourth official.
