Arsenal’s next league game is a tough away trip to Leicester. It is a chance for the Gunners to win two in two after a fantastic comeback against Aston Villa last Saturday. Leicester are not in such good nor bad form, winning two, losing two and drawing one of their last five Premier League games.
The Foxes are currently 14th in the Premier League table, sitting just four points above relegation zone. However, Arsenal have to approach the game with no complacency if they want to take all three points back to London with them.
The referee appointed for this game is 43-year old Craig Pawson. Pawson already refereed two Arsenal games this season, in the win against Bournemouth away (0-3), and the North London derby at White Hart Lane (0-2).
The assistants appointed are Marc Perry and Scott Ledger, with the fourth official being Stuart Atwell. In the VAR room, Michael Salisbury and Lee Betts will be the ones who will make sure that everything goes smoothly.
It is no secret that Arsenal have had their fair share of wrong VAR decisions so far this season, but it seems like Pawson is Arsenal’s lucky charm with the Gunners winning every game he’s taken charge of this season so hopefully there won’t be any errors on his or VAR’s behalf this weekend against Leicester City.
The game kick-offs at 3PM on Saturday, 25th of February.
