Mike Dean is more than just a referee. The 48-year-old is a performer.
Who can forget him ‘celebrating’ Mousa Dembele’s goal against Aston Villa last season? Or his no-look yellow card given to Ross Barkley the other day?
Dean also nailed a dummy during this month’s Merseyside Derby. And he pulled out another one during Southampton vs Spurs tonight.

Before this evening’s game, Dean had dished out 67 yellow cards and three reds in 15 games this season.
