Referee Mike Dean was heavily criticised for his officiating during the festive period and this has led to his demotion to the championship.
His decisions to red-card Sofiane Feghouli in West Ham’s clash against Manchester United and his diffidence to dismiss Ross Barkley during the Merseyside derby has come under criticism.
The FA Cup match between Tottenham and Aston Villa and the Stoke City – Sunderland clash have been officiated by him. However, Dean has been told to take a step back from the Premier League.
Dean will be the man in the middle as Leeds United take on Barnsley in a Yorkshire derby.
