Four Four Two did some number-crunching and came up with a list for every Premier League team of the average points-per-game cost or benefit that every referee has had for them in the middle of last season.
The match official who that study said Everton fans should love was referee Neil Swarbrick, who resulted in +0.426 points over six games officiated in the Premier League. In fact, over all competitions, the Blues are unbeaten in regulation time in nine games that Swarbrick has officiated, with the only loss coming in a penalty shootout two seasons ago in the FA Cup.
