Thomas Tuchel was unhappy with Anthony Taylor’s performance in the London Derby
Asked if he thought Taylor should not take charge of another game with Chelsea, Tuchel said: “Maybe it’s better. I don’t think so, some fans think so.
Tuchel has called on Taylor to stop being responsible for Chelsea matches from now on
I can assure you that the whole dressing room, everyone thinks so. The players know what’s going on when they’re on the field.”
Whether Tuchel is indicted by the FA for his comments or not, Professional Game Management (PGMOL) officials are certain Taylor will not be ruled out for Chelsea’s matches.
In the short term, Taylor is unlikely to take charge of the Blues games anyway because the referees take turns and don’t run the same club twice in a short space of time.
Chelsea fans have long claimed an agenda from Taylor against the Blues following a string of decisions against them in previous games.
Chelsea fans complaining about the refereeing performance during their highly entertaining but ultimately frustrating 2-2 draw with Tottenham have been told their annoyance is rightly justified.
Taylor missed a foul on Kai Havertz in the build-up to Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s equaliser at 1-1 before VAR then allowed the goal to stand despite Richarlison seemingly stood in the path of the ball and in an offside position. The breaking point came when Cristian Romero pulled Marc Cucurella’s hair during the corner before Harry Kane’s headed equaliser. Despite Dean looking at the incident on VAR, no decision was given and Spurs would equalise with the resulting set-piece.
Largely, Chelsea’s moans have been backed up, though Graeme Souness took a differing line, and now former-Premier League referee Mark Halsey has come to Tuchel and Chelsea’s defence.
He took to Twitter to voice his opinions on the hair, pull, saying, “a red card should have been shown for violent conduct.”
The German coach is under investigation by the Football Association over his comments after Sunday’s controversial draw with Tottenham, in which he appeared to doubt Taylor’s impartiality and called on the official not to direct Chelsea’s future matches.
