The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Fulham at Craven Cottages on Monday night.

It’s 12th versus 15th in the Premier League and victory for Chelsea will see them leapfrog their west London rivals into 11th place.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side suffered defeat last time out in the league following a narrow a 1-0 loss at Stamford Bridge to Aston Villa. However, they managed to record a confidence-boosting 1-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday night to progress into the Carabao Cup fourth round.

“I think it was a really important victory,” said Pochettino ahead of facing Fulham, “not only because that victory puts us into the next round of the Carabao Cup, but to build our trust and for our confidence.

“I think another solid performance which we translate into a victory which the players need, the team need and the fans also need. The effort was fantastic from the team. This situation can make us stronger and make us confident for Monday.”

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