The fourth official for this clash is Anthony Taylor. For the VAR officials, Kevin Friend and Andy Halliday will be in charge of the technology.

Kavanagh isn’t too experienced in the Premier League as he has only taken charge of 15 Premier League games so far this season, and has shown a whopping 49 yellow cards as well awarding 4 penalties.

However, he has officiated six Chelsea games in his career, and the Blues have won all of them, most recently the Premier League games against Brighton [2-0] and Aston Villa [2-1] this term.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be hoping his side continues from the impressive 3-0 victory against Burnley last weekend.
