Chelsea Fans Furious As Thiago Silva Gets Sent Off For 'Blocking A Shot' Against West Brom

Thiago Silva was sent off for Chelsea against West Brom on Saturday after his attempted shot block resulted in a clumsy challenge on Okay Yokuslu.

Chelsea hosted West Brom at Stamford Bridge for their Premier League clash and took the lead in the first half through Christian Pulisic.

The 36-year-old Brazilian centre-back's early challenge would come back to haunt him as he received his second booking in the 29th minute.

Silva attempted to block Yokuslu's shot, but he instead managed to catch the 27-year-old Turkish midfielder long after the ball had flown away.

Referee David Coote handed Silva his marching orders as the Blues were reduced to 10 men at Stamford Bridge.

However, Chelsea fans were furious with the decision and questioned how the former Paris Saint-Germain star was booked for a second time over him 'blocking a shot.'
