Referee Lee Mason torn apart following his awful display during Crystal Palace v Arsenal [Best Tweets]

Premier League referee Lee Mason has come under intense scrutiny from football fans following a rather poor refereeing display as Arsenal beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park.

A Damien Delaney own goal was enough to give the Gunners all there points after a spectacular Joel Ward effort had cancelled out an Olivier Giroud acrobatic golazo in the first half.

In the midst of an entertaining 90 minutes in South London came Lee Mason’s scandalous decision to not send off already booked Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin following a challenge on Wilfred Zaha.

The decision to not show the Frenchman his marking orders was key as the Reds held on to a much needed victory following their shock 2-0 defeat to West Ham at the Emirates last Sunday.

Following the incident fans took to Twitter to completely tear the referee to shreds, and it’s safe to say everyone is rather bemused by Lee Mason’s decision, or lack of.
