Jonathan Moss, 44, will referee the 2015 FA Cup final between Arsenal and Aston Villa. The assistant referees will be Simon Bennet and Darren England, while Craig Pawson will the be the 4th official. Moss, who is from West Riding, and is a Sunderland fan, took charge of Arsenal's 2-1 victory against Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season and the 3-0 win over Stoke in January, where he notably failed to punish Marko Arnautovic for pushing Mathieu Debuchy into the advertising boards. Moss refereeed 3 Arsenal matches in 2013/14, all of which resulted in Arsenal victories and Arsenal clean sheets. Moss has produced 110 yellow cards and 8 red cards in 31 games, with only Anthony Taylor and Craig Pawson producing more red cards.
Arsenal fans will probably be disappointed that Michael Olivier, who refereed the 6th round victory over Manchester United, was not appointed to the fixture. Oliver will be in charge when Arsenal play Chelsea this coming Sunday.
