The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Thursday night.

It’s the west London derby, the first since May 2021, and the last time Chelsea suffered defeat to their neighbours was all the way back in 2006 after a 1-0 defeat in the Premier League.

Fulham are on a winning streak after claiming victory in their last three league outings, which also sees them sit in 7th place and three points ahead of Chelsea, however they have played an extra game to the Blues.
