On matchday two of the English Premier League in 2022/2023, Chelsea fans from all over the world attacked referee Anthony Taylor because they believe he is to blame for their 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspurs.
Even though the Blues led twice in the match at Stamford Bridge, Tottenham scored two debatable goals to claw back into the game and earn a draw.
The performance of the referee angered the Chelsea fans who have declared Anthony Taylor an enemy of their club as they call on authorities to ban him from officiating their games.
Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel also blamed referee Anthony Taylor for their inability to win the game as he labelled the two Tottenham goals as illegitimate.
â€œMaybe it would be better, maybe it would be better if he didnâ€™t referee Chelsea games. But honestly, we also have VAR, to help make the right decisions. Since when can players have their hair pulled, since when is that? And if he does not see it I donâ€™t blame him â€“ I didnâ€™t see it.”
Now the petition is gradually gaining momentum as over 100,0000 fans have signed the petition to ban Anthony Taylor from officiating Chelsea games.
Here are some of the tweets calling for Anthony Taylor to be banned from referring Chelsea games compiled in the post below.
