“We are in trouble” – Chelsea fans fear the worst after this referee is picked for Premier League game against Brentford

Chelsea fans are fearing the worst after Anthony Taylor was picked to referee this weekend’s Premier League game against Brentford.

It comes just six weeks after Chelsea fans started a petition to get Taylor banned from refereeing Chelsea matches after he sent off Reece James and awarded Liverpool a penalty during the 1-1 draw at Anfield.

Chelsea fans believe our chances of beating Brentford have severely dipped following the appointment of Taylor for Saturday’s game and believe the Premier League has an agenda against the Blues.

@LDNFootball tweeted: “Anthony Taylor will referee Chelsea’s next Premier League game against Brentford. We’re in trouble.”

@MrGeorgeBenson tweeted: “Anthony Taylor officiating Brentford vs Chelsea at the weekend. Premier League is obviously disgusted that Chelsea Football Club are top of the league and have demanded it change immediately.”

@FrankKhalidUK tweeted: “Anthony Taylor is going to be the referee for our Brentford game this weekend. Really mystified why he is refereeing another Chelsea game especially with so much controversies in previous Chelsea games he has refereed.”

Another user posted: “Chelsea spend one weekend at the top of the Premier League and the FA put Anthony Taylor in charge of Brentford vs Chelsea this Saturday. They hate us.”

Taylor always seems to have an agenda against Chelsea and the draw against Liverpool isn’t the first. He was also in charge of the FA Cup final in 2020 when Chelsea lost to Arsenal at Wembley.

During the game, then Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez looked to handle the ball outside his area but that went unpunished before Mateo Kovacic was given a second yellow card for a tackle on Granit Xhaka, which appeared to be harsh.

In fact, in 9 games Taylor has officiated Chelsea since 2019-20, the Blues have won three, drawn two and lost four.
