Chris Kavanagh has been appointed referee for the Boxing Day fixture between Chelsea and Southampton.

The 34 year old referee has officiated 5 Chelsea games since the start of last season and Chelsea have won every game he was in charge.

Chelsea fans will be hoping our winning run under referee Kavanagh continues on Boxing Day when the Blues take on Southampton.

Sian Massey-Ellis and Adam Nunn will be Kavanagh’s assistants, with Matt Donohue appointed as the fourth official. Lee Mason will be in charge of VAR, assisted by Matthew Wilkes.
