Taylor’s effort, which saw Tottenham Hotspur come from behind twice to tie Chelsea 2-2, certainly did not please Thomas Tuchel.
Kalidou Koulibaly’s fantastic finish gave the Blues the lead early in the game, but they were unable to capitalize on their superiority.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scored in the 68th minute, however, there was debate over whether Kai Havertz had been fouled earlier in the buildup because of the hosts’ claim that Kai Havertz had been tripped up.
Additionally, Richarlison, who was starting for the first time, was deemed to be offside, which some argued obstructs Edouard Mendy’s field of vision.
Harry Kane scored the second goal to tie the score late in injury time after Reece James had made it 2-1, but not before Cristian Romero looked to yank Marc Curucella’s hair and VAR did nothing about it.
Chelsea supporters have now created and signed a petition on Change.org to bar referee Taylor from judging their matches in the future, demonstrating their dissatisfaction with the judgments he made.
The petition states that Anthony Taylor has a grudge against Chelsea and shouldn’t be permitted to referee another game involving the team since Taylor has continued to make significant rulings against Chelsea over the years in key matches.
Following that, they then highlighted eight Taylor rulings that had previously been made against their club, including those from the game on Sunday.
The 43-year-old decisions have been criticized by the Stamford Bridge fans before, with a thread of those decisions previously becoming viral.
The decision by the official, who is from Manchester, to dismiss both Tuchel and Antonio Conte at the end of the game was also a source of discontent for Tuchel.
It hasn’t just been supporters of the west London team who have complained about Taylor in the past; Liverpool fans have also expressed displeasure with Taylor officiating their games.
