Chelsea: Thiago Silva slams Anthony Taylor as video goes viral following Tottenham draw

Thiago Silva questions Anthony Taylor during Chelsea 2-2 Tottenham

Thiago Silva has called out Anthony Taylor on Instagram after Chelsea’s Premier League draw against Tottenham on Sunday evening.

Silva was seen making his feelings known after Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s goal to make it 1-1 in the 68th minute.

Taylor decided against giving a foul when Kai Havertz was taken out by Rodrigo Bentancur.

Roughly 45 seconds after the challenge, Højbjerg found the back of the net from outside of the box.

But that’s not the decision that has promoted Silva to speak out on social media, though.

Cristian Romero went unpunished after pulling Marc Cucurella’s hair at a set-piece.

Moments later, Harry Kane headed home to ensure both sides shared the spoils.

Silva took to Instagram where he criticised Taylor for not punishing Romero despite having a great view of the incident.

“Maybe you didn’t see it? It’s not possible. Can you pull hair?” He wrote, alongside a screenshot of the incident, per The Sportsman.

That’s not the first controversial decision Taylor has given against Chelsea, though.

Following the drama against Tottenham, a video showing some of Taylor’s decisions against Chelsea in the past has gone viral.

Silva isn’t the only Chelsea player that has spoken out about Taylor’s performance.

Reece James has also questioned some of the decisions and claimed that Chelsea deserved to win the game.

He told BBC’s Match of the Day 2: “I think we should have won the game.

“There were two arguable goals for them. I think the referees and the fourth official need to look back on them. It’s frustrating for us when you deserve to win the game.

“I don’t know what they [the officials] were looking at, but we have to take the positives from the game. We were all over them throughout the game.

“I love scoring and I was in the right position. I just like helping the team as much as I can.”

Moreover, Thomas Tuchel suggested Taylor shouldn’t officiate another Chelsea game, while a petition arguing the same point has been signed by over 85,000 fans.

Whether Taylor does take charge of another Chelsea game remains to be seen.
