EPL: There’s no problem – Thiago Silva reacts as Pochettino is told to remove him Chelsea team

Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva, has hit back at criticism from a supporter after their 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest in the Premier League on Saturday.

Chelsea were defeated at Stamford by Steve Cooper side to hand them their second loss of the season.

The Blues have managed just one win from their opening four Premier League games as former Manchester United winger,  Anthony Elanga scored the only goal to hand Forest a 1-0 win.

After the game, the Blues were booed off by their own supporters, while their veteran defender, Thiago Silva, came under fire for his performance in the game.

A Chelsea fan rushed to Instagram to suggest that the manager, Pochettino, should consider dropping Silva after the international break and claiming that the 38-year-old is ‘becoming a problem’.

The Instagram post from talkcfc_ read, “This won’t go down well but I think it’s time to drop Thiago Silva.

“Playing him is becoming a problem because we have to play a back 5 to shoehorn him in.

“Playing 4 at the back will allow us to be better going forward and I don’t think we’ll suffer much at the back.

“Nothing back respect to Thiago but I think we’d be better off without him at the minute.”

But the Brazil international took exception to the post, replying, “If you look closely at the game, we are playing with a line of 4 my friend!

“But there’s no problem in assuming that I’m also responsible for the defeat. Put pressure on me. No problem yesterday!”
