With VAR in use for the first-time ever in a Brentford match, the Match Officials have been announced for tomorrow's Carabao Cup trip to Arsenal. 

One of the most recognisable referees on the circuit, Mike Dean was promoted to the full referees list in 1997 before graduating to the Select Group of Referees three years later. During his distinguished career, the Wirral-born official has taken charge of FA Cup, League Cup, and Play-Off finals, as well as spending a decade on the FIFA international list. 

Dean has taken charge of The Gunners an incredible 64 times but only once has he been in charge of a game involving Brentford; that assignment coming in February 2015 as Mark Warburton's side beat AFC Bournemouth 3-1 at Griffin Park. 

So far this season, Dean has shown 13 yellow cards and two red cards in four Premier League outings.
