MUN 0-0 SOU: Fans Call On Anthony Taylor To Be Investigated After Controversial Decisions

The Red Devils hosted Southampton at Old Trafford just a few days after thrashing Real Betis in the Europa League. They bounced back from the Liverpool defeat with a stunning performance against Betis as they are now the favorite to advance to the Europa League quarter-finals. The Southampton game kicked off with Manchester United dominating the game and pushing for an opening goal. 

Although Southampton's defense was solid, United is destined to unlock it, unfortunately, Casemiro was sent off because of a harsh tackle on a Southampton midfielder. Just a few minutes after the red card, a Southampton defender handed the ball into the eighteen-yard box, but the referee overlooked the incident, despite protests from players to go and look at the side monitor. 

Taylor was the same referee that officiated Manchester United's 4-2 loss against Aston Villa earlier this season, with the referee charged with moving United's wall backward which resulted in an easy free kick from Aston Villa. Today's game has got Manchester United fans fuming.

The Red Devils fans are currently calling on Anthony Taylor to be investigated by the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) after the poor decisions he took throughout the game.
