Confirmed Officials: Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea | Premier League
The officials have been confirmed for Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Chelsea make the short trip across the capital looking to claim their first away win in the Premier League for the first time since mid-October 2022 when they beat Aston Villa 2-0 following a Mason Mount brace.
It’s been a difficult week for Chelsea who have suffered back-to-back defeats against Borussia Dortmund and bottom-of-the-table Southampton, extending their winless run to five games in all competitions.
Pressure is increasing on head coach Graham Potter, a man of whom is losing the support of the fans. But, most importantly, ahead of the London derby the club are backing him to continue.
Two wins in 14 in the Premier League sees Chelsea in 10th. Meanwhile Spurs occupy the final spot in the Champions League places, 11 clear of the Blues. Defeat for the Blues and they really can forget about top-tier European football next season.
Now the officials for the league meeting have been revealed by the Premier League ahead of the encounter.
The Premier League confirmed that Stuart Attwell will take charge of the meeting in the capital.
Stuart Attwell will be supported by Darren Cann and James Mainwaring on the touchline.
Chris Kavanagh has been named as the Fourth Official for Sunday’s match, with the referee overseeing conduct within the two dugouts, and the behaviour of managers Cristian Stellini, who is in temporary charge while Antonio Conte recovers from surgery, and Graham Potter.
Overviewing proceedings from Stockley Park on Saturday afternoon will be Paul Tierney, who has been named as the Video Assistant Referee, with the Assistant Video Assistant Referee being Simon Long.
