The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

Chelsea head across the capital to face their London counterparts in north London as both sides look to end their respective winless runs. Frank Lampard‘s side are without a win in eight matches, losing their last five. Meanwhile, Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes have been dented following a run of four without victory.

“It could be either way,” was Lampard’s response to questions over whether or not it was a good time to play the Gunners. “Very much in the hunt still to win the Premier League. Fantastic team, who have had a great season. If they’re wounded they could have a big reaction, if we can make things difficult for them, it could feel different. Hard one to call.”

Lampard is determined to turn it around in his final six games as caretaker manager before the reigns are handed over, which is expected to be Mauricio Pochettino, starting with Arsenal on Tuesday.

“We’re not in a great moment,” admitted the 44-year-old. “It can be pretty normal of moments of tough periods. We have to put perspective on it. We have to work on all aspects as a club to get back to the feeling and position of where we want to be.”

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


The Premier League have confirmed that Robert Jones will take charge of the meeting in the capital.


Robert Jones will be supported by Timothy Wood and Wade Smith on the touchline.
