Thiago Silva has taken responsibility for his error against West Brom and promised Chelsea supporters he – and the team – will bounce back from the game.
The blues salvaged a point in a 3-3 draw at the Hawthorns after a first half filled with mistakes, with West Brom scoring three goals up inside the first half hour.
Silva was handed his Premier League debut for the match, and even given the captaincy, though he endured a difficult game and was at fault for the Baggies’ second goal on Saturday.
The Brazilian defender was the deepest took a heavy touch which Callum Robinson jumped on, with the striker slotting past Willy Caballero.
Silva, who was playing in the Champions League final just last month, was quick to admit his mistake and vowed to up his game in the future, saying to Chelsea fans that they will see his best form.
Writing on Instagram, Silva said: ‘There are days when unfortunately hard work doesn’t pay off the way we expected.
‘I am upset, but I take responsibility for the mistake I made, as I always did. As difficult as it may be, we have to get over this and move on.
