Lee Mason suspended for weekend fixtures after Arsenal vs Brentford controversy

Lee Mason

Lee Mason will not be on Premier League VAR duty this weekend after failing to spot offside for Brentford’s equalizer against Arsenal on Saturday.

Mason was called into question after Ivan Toney’s goal was upheld despite Christian Norgaard being offside as he crossed for the striker to score.

The PGMOL, which is in charge of Premier League refereeing, stated that the official “forgot” to draw the lines and did not fully investigate the build-up to the goal. The mistake was caused by “human error,” they added.

Mason was not among the officials in charge of VAR when the weekend appointments for Premier League games were announced on Tuesday.

He was not chosen earlier this season in the round following another high-profile error he made in Newcastle’s home match against Crystal Palace on September 3.

It comes after John Brooks was ruled out of Monday’s Merseyside derby and Wednesday’s match between Arsenal and Manchester City.
