More Proof That Arsenal Are Being Harshly Treated by Premier League Refs

Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.

After sitting on top of the table all season, Arsenal have finally dropped down a place as referees move Bournemouth to the top of the yellow card table.

For what I think is the first time this season, Arsenal are no longer top of the yellow card table, nor are they receiving more yellows per foul than other sides.

With Martin Atkinson in charge of Arsenal’s game against West Ham on Saturday, this could all change again.

Look out for a post I have coming later about how badly referees are distributed for Arsenal’s game and why that is a really bad thing.
