Thiago Silva has only had two shockers in a Chelsea shirt – and they’ve both come against West Brom.
The 36-year-old veteran didn’t hang around for long on his return from injury, getting two yellow cards within 29 minutes against West Brom on Saturday.
Silva’s return to action didn’t go to plan
Silva, who had been out for two months due to injury, showed uncharacteristic rustiness, first tugging back Matheus Pereira and then catching Okay Yokuslu with a late challenge.
Chelsea fans are not used to seeing their veteran defender so frazzled after such a fine season, but it’s beginning to become a regular occurrence against West Brom.
The Brazil captain gifted the Baggies their second goal during the dramatic 3-3 draw at the Hawthorns earlier this season – which made for a pretty horrible Premier League debut.
Silva’s PL debut descended into defensive chaos
Speaking on commentary for talkSPORT, legendary West Ham defender Alvin Martin criticised the experienced defender for diving in.
“He goes to ground, he’s experienced enough to know he can’t make that challenge, he’s already seen yellow,” Martin said.
“In the end, David Coote’s got no choice but to give the second yellow.”
