| Last Updated:


The Premier League have confirmed the match referees as Manchester United travel to face Chelsea on Thursday evening.

Manchester United are travelling to London once again as they prepare to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge just a few days after their 1-1 draw with Brentford on Saturday.

Mason Mount, former Chelsea player, grabbed his first goal for the Old Trafford club against Brentford, and may start as he faces his former team for the first time.

United and Chelsea are the two “big six” clubs from the Premier League who have thoroughly underperformed this season, with United sitting in sixth and Chelsea eight points further down in 11th.

The match officials for the tie have been confirmed.

Jarred Gillett (pictured below) will blow the whistle at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening. The experienced referee has taken charge of three United games this season: the 3-1 loss against Brighton at Old Trafford and the crazy 4-3 win over Wolves earlier in the year, where Kobbie Mainoo scored a brilliant winning goal.

Darren Cann and Neil Davies will be on the sidelines, acting as assistant referees for Gillett during the game. Tom Bramall has been handed the fourth official job, separating Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino on Saturday.

The Video Assistant Referee job has been handed to David Coote, who Tim Wood will assist.
