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

With two games to play, Chelsea have nothing left to play for other than pride for themselves individually, as a team and for the club. They will finish in the bottom half of the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are chasing Champions League qualification. One point from their final games will secure European football next season, with third place in the Premier League also in their hands.

Chelsea lost to Manchester City last weekend in the first of two trips to Manchester in the space of five days, and will be hoping to get back to winning ways at Old Trafford.

On how to approach Thursday’s clash, caretaker Frank Lampard said: “Similar approach to Manchester City, albeit they won the league the night before. We’ll have to go there with a good mentality.”

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


The Premier League have confirmed that Stuart Attwell will take charge of the meeting in Manchester.


Stuart Attwell will be supported by Ian Hussin and Richard West on the touchline.
