Chelsea coach Frank Lampard defended the new aid Thiago Silva, saying that the Brazilian will have a good performance in the future.
In Chelsea's 3-3 draw with West Brom, Silva put on the captain's armband, but a stop error caused him to lose the ball. In the 73rd minute, Silva was replaced by Giroud. His Premier League debut was clearly a failure.
Lampard still defended the 36-year-old Brazilian after the game: "He will do well for us. His career has been great. I am sure that he will be very frank about his mistakes, but no one blames him."
"As a team we have to rebound as a whole. We don't blame him. He will admit his mistakes, but this is the only one. This is his first Premier League game. When he is in better physical condition and the team is better , He will show more."
"I don't blame the players, but the mistake in the start made us difficult."
