The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Brentford at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Chelsea host Brentford looking to end a run of four straight defeats and clinch their first win in seven matches in all competitions.

After replacing Graham Potter on a caretaker basis until the end of the season, it’s been a challenging return for Frank Lampard, who has overseen four defeats. As a result, Chelsea are out of the Champions League and currently sitting in 11th place in the Premier League.

Brentford, who are in 10th and five points ahead of Chelsea, have won just two of their last 11 games – all coming in the league – and with the Blues not winning any of their last six, Wednesday provides a perfect opportunity for Lampard’s side to get back to winning ways.

“Stability, really good coach,” Lampard said when asked on Brentford and Thomas Frank. “Real clear idea of how they want to play, recruitment of how they want to play. Huge credit to everybody involved.”

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


The Premier League have confirmed that Andy Madley will take charge of the meeting in the capital.


Andy Madley will be supported by Harry Lennard and Nick Hopton on the touchline.
