The German has been informed of a fan-led petition demanding that Taylor be removed from future Chelsea games following the 0-0 draw with Liverpool in August which saw Reece James sent off.
Over 80,000 fans signed up for the online survey.
Tuchel dismissed any concerns about Taylor when asked about the referee on Friday – but his comments could still be viewed as a violation of FA Rule E3.1, which provides for a number of potential penalties, including a charge and a fine.
The Chelsea manager said on Friday: “I have confidence in the referees and I have confidence in Anthony Taylor that he will try to have the best performance.
“Do we need a high level referee? Yes. Do we need good VAR decisions or maybe not VAR decisions? Yes. Do we need a little luck? Yes. And, hopefully, we can turn things around with Anthony Taylor. “
Although Tuchel has not criticized Taylor, managers are not allowed to discuss officials before games.
The FA guidelines state: “Any pre-match comment in media or social media regarding a designated match official, whether identified by name or by implication, will be treated as a breach of Rule E3. .1 of the FA. “
Tuchel is likely to be warned of his future conduct, rather than receiving more severe punishment.
Pep Guardiola was warned by the FA of comments he made about Taylor in 2018 ahead of a Manchester derby – but Jose Mourinho was fined £ 50,000 two years earlier for remarks he had made about the same referee before a clash between Manchester United and Liverpool.
Mourinho had already been warned of comments made about an official.
Tuchel’s previous good record since joining Chelsea in January means he is unlikely to be penalized heavily, but he could be asked to explain his comments.
He also joked that he didn’t join fans to sign the petition.
In its guidelines, the FA states that it has the power to “issue a formal charge or warning; remind them of their responsibilities or take no other action based on the seriousness of the incident or the background of the “participant”.
Meanwhile, Tuchel praised Chelsea’s resilience after securing a 1-0 victory at Griffin Park, despite an attack from Brentford in the second half.
But he’s adamant they need to improve in attack as they face the challenge of rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.
“We are what we are,” he said. “We do our best to create opportunities.
“We lacked a bit of precision, otherwise we had a couple of half chances – maybe it’s the same song we’ve been singing for many weeks. We put a lot of effort into every part of the game.
“It’s not just about scoring, it’s about defending, counterpressing, evading pressure and today it was a big topic to collect the second and third balls in the middle of ground.
“We put a lot of effort into getting a performance like this for 65 or 70 minutes and we do it as a team, so sometimes we get a bit lacking in composure and maybe we’re not too relaxed in front of it. the goal. This is the price we pay. We have the quality and we trust our guys and we can score more goals.
“Liverpool and Manchester City have proven in recent years that they are the benchmark in terms of quality and consistency. They have shown us in recent years what it takes to become champions.
“It was a race between the two teams and it is the benchmark and we have to improve in all aspects of the game – that includes defense and attack – because the game is complex. We will not stop. try to create more for our attackers.
