The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Chelsea are back in domestic action this weekend following the conclusion of the international break.

Graham Potter‘s side head into the Villa clash having gone four games unbeaten in all competitions in March. Three of those came in the Premier League; two wins against Leeds United and Leicester City were followed up with a draw against Everton.

Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek hasn’t given up yet on a Premier League top four finish ahead of the affair, telling talkSPORT: “Well we’re not going to win the league. We’re out the Cup. Champions League is all we have.

“I wouldn’t say Champions League or bust, we’ve still got a bit more time in the Premier League to jump up the table. But for us, Champions League is where we’re at.

“Champions League is where we need to knuckle down and focus and give ourselves the best chance of winning.”
