Thiago Silva has taken to Instagram to have his say on Anthony Taylor’s refereeing of Chelsea.

His performance in the middle was called into question again during Chelsea’s fixture with Spurs yesterday, where the Blues twice saw a lead disappear in the second half to eventually draw 2-2.

Thomas Tuchel was visibly fuming with what went on, and used his post-match press conference to question whether either goal for the visitors should’ve stood.

There were calls for a foul on Kai Havertz less than a minute before Spurs’ first goal, with Richarlison also seemingly obstructing Edouard Mendy’s view from an offside position.

In the final moments, Cristian Romero survived a VAR review for a potential red card after pulling at Marc Cucurella’s hair in the area, an incident which former referee Mark Halsey claimed should have seen him sent off.

The incident went unpunished, and Harry Kane levelled proceedings with one of the final kicks of the game.

It is not the first time Taylor has been involved in controversy around Chelsea games, with it seemingly becoming evident to the players that this is a regular feature during his time officiating the Blues.

Despite only spending two seasons with the club, Thiago Silva has made his thoughts known on an Instagram post questioning whether Taylor should referee the Blues again.

In the comments of that post, Thiago Silva responded with a heap of angry emojis, suggesting he would be keen to not see the Englishman again anytime soon.

Despite the anger at the referee, the experienced heads in the camp should be making sure the players remember just how well they played in the London derby, with them dominating their arch-rivals from start to finish.

With all the talk of them being overtaken by Antonio Conte’s side ahead of this season, they will be keen to build on yesterday to prove that isn’t the case.
