Southampton Asks English Premier League To Ban Mike Dean And Lee Mason From Officiating Their Games.

Southampton has asked the English Premier League to ban controversial referee Mike Dean after the referee made questionable decisions on Tuesday as Southampton was playing Manchester United. The match ended 9-0 in Manchester United's favour.

Referee Mike Dean red-carded Southampton midfielder Alexandre Jankewitz two minutes into the match. It was well deserved but the second red card on Jan Bednarek brought about mixed reactions after United striker Anthony Martial went down in the box due pressure from Bednarek.

From the video footage at Old Trafford, it is evident that Martial's fall was a clear dive as there was minimal contact with defender Bednarek.

After consulting the VAR and checking the side monitor, Dean sent off Bednarek and awarded a penalty that was slotted home comfortably by playmaker Bruno Fernandes.

Reports from Radio Solent has it that Southampton has now asked the Premier League that neither Dean nor Lee Mason be appointed as the designated official for any of their matches in their upcoming matches.

Manchester United 9-0 win against Southampton equalled their win against Ipswich Town and Southampton's loss to Leicester.
