Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has spoken out after he received a red card in the blues 5-2 defeat to West Brom and believes referee David Coote made the wrong decision to send him off on Saturday.

 

The Brazil International had just returned to Thomas Tuchel’s side following a thigh injury that had kept him out since early February.

 

He was shown a second yellow card midway through the first half after the Blues had just taken the lead through Christian Pulisic minutes earlier.

Silva tried to block a shot from Okay Yokuslu and fouled the Baggies star and was shown a second yellow card.

 

Chelsea conceded 5 goals thereafter slumping to their first defeat in 14 games since the German took charge at Stamford Bridge.

 

Silva took to Social media disagreeing with the decision, but takes full responsibility and is now shifting his focus to Wednesday’s Champions League tie against FC Porto.

 

He wrote  “I believe it was not an expulsion move, but the referee made his decision and we can’t change that. I assume my responsibility, which unfortunately affected the result of the game. It’s time to join our forces because on Wednesday we have another battle.”
