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

After a confidence-boosting March, Chelsea started April in the worst possible fashion after a 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa in the Premier League, and it spelled the end for Graham Potter as head coach.

Chelsea made the decision to relieve the 47-year-old of his duties on Sunday following Saturday’s loss. Bruno Saltor has been put in interim charge of the Blues and he is relishing the opportunity after a difficult 24 hours which has followed Potter’s exit.

“I see it as an opportunity for the players,” the Spaniard said on the game. “We represent Chelsea with an amazing history. It’s about winning and dominating. Preparation helps performance a lot. That’s what the players need to focus on.”

Ahead of facing Liverpool, who also suffered a 4-1 defeat to Manchester City at the weekend, Saltor issued a demand to his squad to ensure they are ready to face an out-of-form side, who have lost their last three games in all competitions.

Saltor added: “They are going through a tough season, but they have top players. We need to be ready.”

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


The Premier League confirmed that Anthony Taylor will take charge of the meeting in the capital.


Anthony Taylor will be supported by Gary Beswick and Dan Cook on the touchline.
