Chelsea were left furious with referee Anthony Taylor’s performance during their match against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, with Thomas Tuchel suggesting that Taylor shouldn’t be allowed to take charge of Blues matches in the future. 

The German’s outrage stemmed from two seemingly obvious errors from Taylor and Mike Dean, who was in charge of VAR for the game.

Chelsea went ahead twice but were pegged back both times, with the hosts feeling that neither of Spurs’ goals should have stood.

The Blues dominated the match for the majority, but were left to rue missed chances when Harry Kane flicked a header into Edouard Mendy’s net in the sixth minute of added time to rescue a point for the visitors.

In the wake of the game, it appears that Chelsea have decided to prioritise a move for a striker, with talks once again being held with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to The Mail.

Aubameyang could be on his way back to London

The report claims that Chelsea have held further talks with the striker’s current club Barcelona over a proposed move for the 33-year-old as Todd Boehly looks to solve the club’s problems up front.

Aubameyang was reportedly offered to several clubs including Chelsea after the arrival of Robert Lewandowski last month, although the Spanish side are believed to be demanding at least £23 million for a player that they themselves signed for free six months ago.

The former Arsenal man has scored 11 goals during his time in Catalunya despite starting just 13 matches, although Lewandowski’s arrival is likely to limit his playing time this season.

Tuchel and Aubameyang developed a good working relationship while together at Borussia Dortmund, and the German is now keen for a reunion.
