Why Mike Dean Is The Cause Of Arsenal's Draw With Crystal Palace

Mike Dean was the center referee in charge of the game between Arsenal and Crystal Palace which ended in a 2-2 draw.

Although the game ended in a draw, as both sides had to share the points even though Arsenal took the lead very early in the first half. Mike Dean's decisions in the game contributed to Arsenal not winning the game.

Arsenal players were fouled several times during the first half of the game, and so many of these tackles by Crystal Palace players warranted a yellow card, but Mike Dean never awarded any yellow cards to Crystal Palace players.

Instead, he was quick to award Bukayo Saka the first yellow card of the match after he tackled a Crystal Palace player. Meanwhile, Arsenal players had been fouled earlier by the Crystal Palace players and none were booked.

Furthermore, Crystal Palace James McArthur should have been given a red card after he dropped Saka with a powerful kick to the calf while trying to clear a ball. Fortunately for McArthur, he was only given a yellow card by Mike Dean.

This decision by Mike Dean I am in disagreement with because such tackles can result in serious injury.
