Craig Pawson

The same guy who issued yellow cards to Harry Kane and Alli for their fouls on Sterling and De Bruyne and who disallowed the goal against Arsenal in last season's FA Cup semi-final.

Fills you with joy doesn't it!

Season 2017/18

The 38-year-old self-confessed Sheffield United supporter has taken charge of 24 domestic and Europa League games and one 2018 World Cup qualifying match, and in doing so the Yorkshireman has brandished 85 yellow and four red cards.

As mentioned, the Wembley final will also use VAR technology.

Doesn't really bode well with Pawson does it?
