Chelsea were left ruing refereeing decisions made by Anthony Taylor in their Premier League draw against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening, Report informs, citing GiveMeSport.
The Blues were left furious that Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s 68th minute equaliser was allowed to stand.
Rodrigo Bentancur was not penalised for a challenge on Kai Havertz in the build-up to the goal. An offside was also not given against Richarlison.
In the dying embers of the match, Taylor and VAR decided against punishing Cristian Romero for pulling Marc Cucurella’s hair at a set-piece.
Tottenham scored to snatch a point from the resulting corner.
Taylor then sent off both Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel following an altercation at the final whistle.
This is not the first time that Taylor has given controversial decisions against the Blues. And Chelsea fans have well and truly had enough.
A petition was set up after the final whistle on Sunday evening.
“Anthony Taylor has continued to make big decisions against Chelsea over the years in big matches. Taylor has an agenda against Chelsea and should not be allowed to referee a game involving the club again,” the petition reads.
The petition has already received over 84,000 signatures, with Chelsea fans making their feelings about the 43-year-old clear.
