Tottenham Hotspur are set to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the early kick-off in the Premier League this Saturday, and it’s now been revealed who the match officials will be.
Spurs are off to a good start in the league with four points on the board from the first two matches. A rousing 4-1 win at home to Southampton on the opening day was followed by an intense 2-2 draw against London rivals Chelsea on Sunday.
That derby was shrouded in controversy, with Thomas Tuchel claiming after the game that both of Tottenham’s goals should not have stood. The Chelsea manager’s comments are now being investigated by the FA (Evening Standard).
With that in mind, the referees in the upcoming round of Premier League fixtures are likely to be under the microscope more than usual. The decisions of their VAR colleagues will also be scrutinised by fans and pundits alike.
Spurs welcome a Wolves team who have taken just one point from their opening two games. They started the season with a 2-1 defeat at Leeds and played out a 0-0 draw with newly-promoted Fulham on Saturday.
A report from the Premier League has revealed who will officiate the game between Spurs and Wolves, with Simon Hooper set to be the man in charge.
Hooper will be assisted by Adrian Holmes and Mark Scholes, with Robert Jones as the fourth official for the game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Lee Mason will be on VAR duties at Stockley Park, with Lee Betts as his assistant.
