Premier League referee Lee Mason will be the man in charge when Leeds United welcome Everton to Elland Road in the Capital One League Cup this evening.
The Lancashire official has taken charge of 4 games so far this season, showing 11 yellow cards and 0 reds.
Last season he took charge of 32 games, showing 80 yellow cards and 3 reds.
Two of his three sending offs last season came in a game involving Everton in this same competition.
He sent off a player from each side in the 2-1 home defeat to Chelsea in the fourth round.
Last season he took charge of Everton on five occasions. As well as the defeat to Chelsea, he was also in charge of their 1-0 win at Blackburn, the 1-0 home defeats to both Stoke City and Arsenal and the 0-0 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
He does like to send off players when Everton are involved it seems. In the 2010/11 season, he sent off five players and two of those game in the Everton and West Brom game at Goodison Park when a player from each side was sent off.
You have to go back to the 2009/10 season for the last time he was in charge of Leeds. Mason was in charge when Leeds beat Norwich City 2-1 at Elland Road thanks to an injury time winner from Jermaine Beckford.
Referee: Lee Mason (Lancashire)
Assistants: Simon Beck & Richard West
Fourth Official: Andre Marriner
