Chelsea fullback Alonso supports petition calling for ref Taylor ban

Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso has supported a petition to have ref Anthony Taylor banned from refereeing their matches.

The Daily Mail says Alonso liked a post about a petition calling for Taylor to be banned from officiating Chelsea fixtures after he sent off Reece James in their 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

The decision saw Mohamed Salah convert the resulting spotkick.

Following the game, fans launched a petition calling for Taylor to be stopped from refereeing future Chelsea matches. Fan page 'Chelseapulse' shared a picture of the petition, which was liked by left back Alonso.

The defender has since unliked the post but Chelsea's players are clearly still aggrieved by Taylor's decision.
