EPL: Silva slams Referee Taylor over hair pulling as Chelsea draws Tottenham


 

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has slammed referee Anthony Taylor’s decision not to give a clear foul during his side’s Premier League 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

During the dying minutes of Chelsea’s clash with Tottenham at Stamford Bridge, Christian Romero was seen tugging on Marc Cucurella’s hair before a corner kick was taken.

VAR official, Mike Dean, had a look at the incident and decided it was not a red card offence, nor a free-kick to Chelsea.

However, Referee, Taylor allowed Tottenham to take another corner straight away, which Harry Kane scored from to make it 2-2.

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, was furious as both the German coach and Tottenham manager Antonio Conte clashed following the final whistle.

However, Silva appears to be angered by Taylor’s lack of action, writing on his Instagram story: “Haven’t you seen this? No way. Is hair pulling allowed?”

Silva will now hope to lead Chelsea to victory in their next Premier League tie against Leeds United next Sunday.
