Arsenal fans have been given a mini-boost ahead of our clash with Leicester City next Saturday as Mark Clattenburg has been named the referee.

Clatts is the best of a bad bunch, most would say. In fact, he’s deemed so good at his job that he reffed in the Euro 2016 final.

That’s not to say he doesn’t make mistakes, of course he does, but he’s less likely to than some of the officials out there.

Clatts had refereed a grand total of 36 games that Arsenal were involved in and we’ve won 24 of those (lost nine and drawn three). We’ve picked up 53 yellow cards, no reds and have been awarded 10 penalties. This means that he’s happy to stop play for a foul but does tend to shy away from making big decisions. Of course, this could have changed since he reffed both the Champions League and Euro 2016 final.

I’m just going to leave this here…
