Chelsea travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, and the Blues will be hoping to get one over their London rivals.

Referee Craig Pawson will be the man in charge on the day, while his assistants are Lee Betts and Richard West

The fourth official for the game is Martin Atkinson, and the VAR officials are Michael Oliver and Stephen Child.

Pawson has been in charge of 10 Premier League games so far this season and has issued 38 yellow cards and 1 red card.

Pawson’s recent officiating of Chelsea saw the Blues lose 3-1 to Everton.

Chelsea are in poor form, having lost four of their last six league matches, but Arsenal are even in worse form.

The Gunners have managed just one win from 14 in all competitions and new manager Mikel Arteta has been tasked with leading Arsenal back to glory.
