The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Chelsea earned a point in their opening fixture of the 2023/24 Premier League season last weekend after coming from behind to seal a 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

Mauricio Pochettino saw Axel Disasi net on his debut from close range to ensure Chelsea didn’t suffer opening day defeat in the Argentine’s first official game in charge.

“It’s going to be tough,” Pochettino said ahead of travelling across the capital to face West Ham.

“We know how they are going to play. They are beginning to change the shape but it’s always going to be tough. All of the Premier League games will be difficult.
