Following the match against Tottenham, Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel criticized referee Anthony Taylor, prompting the FA to enter the game
The London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham was a bloodbath, both on and off the field. Tottenham equalized in the closing minutes thanks to Harry Kane, and the game ended 2-2. After the game, coach Tuchel stated that the refereeing work was problematic, and that referee Anthony Taylor was biased against Tottenham.
In the first instance, referee Taylor ignored Havertz’s complaint about Bentancur’s foul before the Spurs scored. The referee then ignored the incident in which Romero pulled Cucurella’s hair before Kane headed in the equalizer for Tottenham.
Coach Tuchel stated during the post-match press conference: “Perhaps it would have been preferable if Anthony Taylor had not officiated at Chelsea games. I believe there are many fans who believe Taylor has made decisions. Chelsea made a bad decision.
I can assure you that the players and coaching staff believe so as well. Both Spurs goals were illegal, and the outcome is unjust. I was unable to direct the next game, but the referee was able to continue as usual. Cool!”
Following coach Tuchel’s comments criticizing the referee above, the English Football Association (FA) decided to open an investigation into the Chelsea captain. Before deciding on penalties, the FA will review the videotape of the incident as well as the referee’s match report.
Coach Tuchel will be unable to take charge of Chelsea’s next game against Leeds this weekend due to a red card received against Tottenham. After the FA completes its investigation, the German strategist may face a serious penalty.
Chelsea’s technical staff is frequently dissatisfied with referee Anthony Taylor’s control of the game. The English black king made some mistakes, one of which was ignoring defender Marc Cucurella’s hair pulling case.
Anthony Taylor, on the other hand, cannot be blamed for Chelsea’s 2-2 draw. The Blues dominated the game but were unable to defeat their opponent. Both strikers Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling wasted good chances in front of goalkeeper Hugo LIoris.
Following the London derby, tens of thousands of Chelsea fans signed a petition asking referee Anthony Taylor not to start the Blues’ matches.
According to the British press, the Professional Referees Association of English Football (PGMOL) declined Chelsea fans’ request. At home matches at Stamford Bridge, the black king Anthony Taylor still blows the whistle.
Professionalism must always accompany passion. Tuchel must edit and preserve the image because the English Football Association (FA) will almost certainly sanction the German captain following the recent statements.
