Chelsea fans have vented their frustration online after Anthony Taylor awarded a penalty to Manchester City in the first-half of their clash against the Premier League champions.

While Haaland was certainly impeded by Cucurella, the decision was not clear-cut given the Norwegian had pulled the Chelsea man back in order to get in front of him.

Thiago Silva equalised shortly after Haaland’s goal, but Blues fans were quick to express their anger at referee Taylor, who has previously been criticised for decisions made in Chelsea games.
