The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Chelsea are looking to make it three wins in a row in all competitions after back-to-back wins over Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund ended a run of six matches without victory.

A top four finish in the Premier League looks almost impossible for Graham Potter and Chelsea this season – they currently sit in 10th – but two big results in the last week may give them the much-needed lift to finish the season strongly.

Meanwhile, Leicester City are currently in 15th place and just two points above the relegation zone. They have also lost their last three matches in the Premier League.

Leicester’s record against Chelsea isn’t favourable either; the Foxes have won just three of the last 18 encounters between the two sides since 2015.

Now the officials for the league meeting have been revealed by the Premier League ahead of the encounter.


The Premier League confirmed that Andre Marriner will take charge of the meeting in the Midlands.


Andre Marriner will be supported by Simon Long and Natalie Aspinall on the touchline.

Fourth Official

Jarred Gillett has been named as the Fourth Official for Saturday’s match, with the referee overseeing conduct within the two dugouts, and the behaviour of managers Brendan Rodgers and Graham Potter.

VAR/Assistant VAR
