The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Chelsea are searching for their first win over Man United away from home for the first time since May 2013, a dismal record of almost 10 years without a victory.

Mauricio Pochettino is wary of Man United’s threat on the counter-attack and has warned his team of the players they need to watch out for.

“I think they are very good players,” responded Pochettino when asked about United’s biggest threat.

“The pace of offensive player, we can not allow them to transit. We need to be careful in the way that we are going to build up, finish and lose the ball.

“We need to be clear in the way we don’t allow to transition. They have pressing from Rashford, Garnacho, different players that can transit really fast. Then it is try to dominate and try to play in the opposite half.”

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