The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
Chelsea bounced back from defeat against Brentford with a 4-1 win over Tottenham on Monday night, a performance that will have boosted spirits in the Blues camp ahead of another heavyweight clash on Sunday.
It’s been a mixed start to life at Chelsea for Pochettino, who is trying to get a settled squad amidst all of the injury problems. Man City have dominated the Premier League over the last five years and Chelsea are striving to get back to the top.
Despite plenty of money being splashed in west London, Pochettino is keen to stress that it’s not as easy as adding talented players to the side. Ahead of the Premier League clash, the Argentine said: When you arrive at a club and in a team that is very confident and solid in how they operate and in their structure, always it’s easier. If you arrive at a club that is in a process of building something – (City) are ahead (of Chelsea).
“When a player arrives in a very consistent organisation, it’s only about performing. But the possibility of a player signed by City to perform is higher than if we sign a player here, at the moment.
“We are trying to find the best organisation, the best way to operate, the best way to play, to know each other. At City, you arrive and Pep… doesn’t need to talk too much. The player knows everything they need to do and how they need to behave.
“They know how it works, the club. But here we are all new. Too many players (are new) and the organisation is in a moment where it is evolving and developing, and trying to find the best way to work.”
Now the officials for the league meeting have been revealed by the Premier League ahead of the encounter.
The Premier League have confirmed that Anthony Taylor will take charge of the meeting in London.
Anthony Taylor will be supported by Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn on the touchline.
Craig Pawson has been named as the Fourth Official for Sunday’s match, with the referee overseeing conduct within the two dugouts, and the behaviour of Mauricio Pochettino and Pep Guardiola.
Overviewing proceedings from Stockley Park on Sunday afternoon will be Jarred Gillett, who has been named as the Video Assistant Referee, with the Assistant Video Assistant Referee being Darren Cann.
