Chelsea will begin their title defence for the 2017/18 Premier League campaign on Saturday against Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Craig Pawson will be the man in charge of the game as Chelsea would be aiming to start the season with a win.

Lee Mason has been appointed as the fourth official for the match, while Constantine Hatzidakis and Roger West will be the linesmen.

Last season, Pawson handed out 139 yellow cards in the 34 games that he officiated throughout the course of the 2016/17 campaign, also handing out five red cards in the Premier League and FA Cup combined.
