BREAKING NEWS: Chelsea FC Fans fumes after the FA Makes A Significant Referee Decision That Affects Arsenal, Chelsea, And other Premier League Clubs.

“This is absolute rubbish,They aren’t talking about wrong VAR decisions and good REFEREES”- Said a Chelsea fan, This has led to reduction in sales of tickets to fans worldwide

More than 160,000 Chelsea supporters, and probably even more, rejoiced at the news last week that Anthony Taylor had been demoted from Premier League action. Taylor has been a Premier League official since 2010, but did not referee in the top flight last weekend.

The major Premier League decision came after controversy during the Wolves vs Newcastle United clash last weekend. Taylor was the man in the middle as the Magpies were awarded a penalty when Hwang Hee-chan was deemed to have caught Fabian Schar as he looked to clear the ball.

Replays showed Hwang pulling out of the tackle, but VAR did not overrule the decision on the field. Callum Wilson fired home the resultant spot-kick, with the match ending 2-2.

There was a huge outcry after the game, with many pundits deeming it not a foul. And Taylor will now not referee in the Premier League this weekend. He will instead be in the middle for the Championship fixture between Preston and Coventry on Saturday – his first time officiating in the second tier since 2019.

The news would have delighted Chelsea supporters, who previously called for him to never referee a Blues match again. A petition on was started in August last year after the match between Chelsea and Tottenham ended 2-2 at Stamford Bridge.

Harry Kane equalised deep in stoppage time that day, after Cristian Romero had pulled Marc Cucurella’s hair – a foul that was not given and not overturned by VAR, with then-VAR official Mike Dean later admitting that it was a decision he regretted.

More than 160,000 people signed that petition, with Chelsea fans naming 12 different incidents that they felt Taylor got wrong in their matches. Well, one more can be added to the list after the penalty awarded to Erling Haaland at Stamford Bridge.

Taylor gave a penalty after Marc Cucurella was adjudged to have fouled Haaland by pulling him back – though both players had a hold of each other’s shirts to start with. Another coming together just seconds before between Jeremy Doku and two Chelsea players which left Reece James on the floor was not decided to be worth a free-kick either, with VAR refusing to overturn the decision.
