‘Hair pull doesn’t constitute red card’: Spurs fan admits Chelsea robbed, still defends Anthony Taylor
Chelsea had to settle for a 2-2 draw against Spurs as Harry Kane equalised in the 96th minute.
The goal was very dodgy as Cristian Romero pulled Marc Cucurella’s hair in the build-up.
A Tottenham supporter nicknamed Damian A concedes that the result is not fair but still defends the referee’s decision to let Kane’s goal stand. Here’s what he has to say..TAP.TO.CONTINUE READING.
“Chelsea fans, I have to admit that we robbed you today,” Damian A wrote on The Athletic. “Tuchel out-thought us, and your players outperformed ours.
“I understand your criticism of A Taylor, but I’m not sure he actually got too much wrong: Bentancur did just nick the ball with Havertz, Richarlison is probably too far away from Mendy to be quite obstructing and Romero’s hair pull needs punishing, but doesn’t quite constitute a red card, so VAR can’t get involved (bonkers rules).
“I get your frustration though. As a Spurs fan, it was quite frustrating how we conceded goals. Both from poor defending.
“Aside from those two lapses (and Havertz’s miss), we managed your dominance reasonably well, with a newfound resilience. Chelsea v Spurs is always feisty and this is part of why we love these fixtures.”
