Anthony Taylor is set to take charge of West Ham vs Brighton in gameweek three of the 2022/23 Premier League season.

Taylor was roundly criticised by Chelsea fans, players and even the manager Thomas Tuchel following the Blues' 2-2 draw with Tottenham. Chelsea felt aggrieved that both of Spurs' goals stood - the first for offside and the second for Cristian Romero pulled Marc Cucurella's hair shortly before Harry Kane headed home in the 96th minute.

When asked about Chelsea's long-term grievances with Taylor after the game, Tuchel replied: “I don’t think that just some of the fans think that. I can assure you that the whole dressing room, every single person thinks that.

“I cannot understand how the first goal is not offside. And I cannot understand since when players can pull other people’s hair and stay on the pitch and attack in the last corner.”

Chelsea fans, and Taylor himself will likely breathe a sigh relief this weekend as the referee will not be taking charge of their game vs. Leeds United at Elland Road.
