The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday night.

Both sides are heading into the London derby off the back of Premier League defeats. Chelsea suffered a 4-2 defeat to Wolves last Sunday, while Roy Hodgson’s Eagles were thrashed 4-1 by rivals Brighton & Hove Albion.

Chelsea bounced back in midweek with a 3-1 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup and will be hoping to avoid three consecutive league defeats when they travel from west to south London.

“We had some good performances but weren’t consistent enough,” Pochettino told reporters on Chelsea’s consistency issues this season.

“Now it’s an opportunity to show more of these types of performances. We believe it’s the time to be consistent. I think the players deserve because they are working really hard from the beginning of the season.

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