The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday night.

Chelsea head to north to face the league leaders, with Liverpool sitting two points clear of Arsenal and having a game in hand.

It’s the warm-up for the Carabao Cup final next month after Chelsea and Liverpool reached the Wembley final. The second half of the season has even more meaning for the Reds after Jurgen Klopp announced he will depart at the end of the season.

“It’s true that our performance if we compare with another team, we are at the top, only in terms of performance, but of course, after we miss maybe this type of player (like Christopher Nkunku) that would make a difference. This is the reality, we need to build our victory in different ways and try to be clinical because we want to win games.”

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