The Premier League touts itself as being the best in the world.

Media partners like Sky Sports try to ram home that piece of information at every available opportunity, and ex-players who become pundits seem to be on commission to get it into every sentence they utter.

Here are 10 examples of terrible officiating in the Premier League this season.
