Taylor has taken charge of 42 games in all competitions so far this season, and has issued out 168 yellow and 7 red cards. The ref has also awarded 16 penalties.

Interestingly, Taylor was the referee in charge of the FA Cup final in 2017 when the Blues suffered a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.

A win for Chelsea on Saturday, will be a good way to end the season for Frank Lampard, having sealed a top four place.
