Mike Dean: Remembering All of His 100 Premier League Red Cards

On Tuesday night, Ashley Young wrote his name into the history books, but for all the wrong reasons. He was sent off as his Manchester United side fell 2-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers, becoming the 100th player who has been sent off by referee Mike Dean in the Premier League era.

You can just imagine a young Mike Dean awake at night, dreaming of becoming the first man to dismiss 100 people. Congratulations Mike, you've made it.
