Clattenburg has recently come under intense media and public scrutiny after the Blues accused the 37-year-old of using racial slurs to insult midfielders John Obi Mikel and Juan Mata during the controversial Premier League game between Manchester United and Chelsea on Sunday.
Chelsea followed up their accusations by launching a formal complaint with the Football Association on Thursday, although their complaint dealt specifically with the words allegedly used by Clattenburg against Mikel, while the Blues have decided against complaining about the supposedly racist remarks made towards Mata after an internal investigation carried out by external legal counsel.
However, Clattenburg has since reportedly denied any wrongdoing on his part and according to Poll, is feeling victimised by the whole affair and will go all out to protest his innocence.
"I know he's feeling angry because he doesn't feel he's done anything wrong - he's angry and confused," Poll told talkSPORT.
"He's angry because he's being accused of something he doesn't feel he did, and confused because, in his mind, he's done nothing wrong and yet ended up as the victim.
"That's the bit you look at and go 'why?' You think, 'what's going on?' And there's this media circus."
Clattenburg has been dropped for this weekend's round of Premier League fixtures in light of the on-going investigations.
