Chelsea fans are sad as Controversial referee set to officiate Sunday’s clash with Manchester City

Anthony Taylor has been appointed the centre referee for this Sunday’s Premier League meeting with Manchester City.

The match official is well-known for being at the centre of controversies in games involving Chelsea.

A quick example is the 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge last August, where he failed to spot Cristian Romero dragging Marc Cucurella by his hair during a corner kick. Harry Kane scored to equalise for Spurs just seconds later, and deny the Blues maximum points.

Taylor was also involved in another controversy recently, after wrongfully awarding a penalty to Newcastle during their 2-2 draw against Wolves. He was demoted to the Championship for a week, where he also made more bad headlines, only for him to now be handed a game as huge as this one.

A lot of Chelsea fans are unhappy with the decision from the PGMOL, but it appears little can be done to change that as things stand.
