The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Luton Town at Stamford Bridge on Friday night.

Mauricio Pochettino will be given a chance, at the third attempt, to win his first Premier League game in charge of Chelsea when Luton make the visit to west London.

Chelsea drew to Liverpool and then lost to West Ham despite having a man advantage at the London Stadium for a large part of the second half. Now they can quickly put the defeat behind them on Friday.

Pochettino was in a confident and upbeat mood ahead of the game, insisting: “We need to play bad to win? Is that the second part to your question? We will win, we will succeed in the way the players are buying the philosophy, it is only a matter of time.

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