His most recent match involving Arsenal was the 6-0 win away at West Ham United in the Premier League in February when he showed 4 yellow cards, all of which were shown to the hosts.

You have to go back to the 2008/09 season for the last time he refereed a match involving the visitors. It was their 3-1 win at home against Shrewsbury Town in League Two, in a game which saw him show only 2 yellow cards, including a booking for Luton Town defender Sol Davis. He has been Fourth Official for three Premier League matches involving Luton Town this season: Luton Town 1-2 Manchester City, Luton Town 2-3 Chelsea and Burnley 1-1 Luton Town.

Craig Pawson oversaw a total of 39 matches last season, showing 156 yellow cards (4.00) and 3 red cards. He was just a little card-happy in the Europa Conference League encounter between Slavia Prague and Rakow Czestochowa (2-0) when he showed 10 yellow cards.

Pawson has been the man with the whistle on 25 occasions so far this season, showing 118 yellow cards (4.74) and 4 red cards. He showed 11 yellow cards in the Premier League match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester City (2-1).
