Lampard: “Silva will be fantastic for us”

Thiago Silva was part of a Chelsea defence that conceded three goals to Westbrom in a woeful defensive firsthalf display.

The Experienced Defender gifted Callum Robinson his second goal before Chelsea failed to defend a corner properly which lead to a third goal from Kyle Bartley.

Speaking Post-match, Lampard believes Silva will come good and wants him to forget his unconvincing premier league debut.

"Thiago Silva is going to be fantastic for us. He has been incredible in his career and absolutely, I will not look at him," 

"I can talk about the misses, they are clear and I am open and honest about that. We are a team but we have to react around that and, to be fair, the team did in the second half. But, there is nothing on Thiago, I am sure he will stand up and say it was a mistake.

"But other than that, I thought he was pretty faultless in the game. That’s his first Premier League game done and in the bank. We will get a lot more from him as well especially as he gets fitter and as the whole squad get fitter."

Lampard was also unhappy about how his team played on-the-ball thinking they didn’t put Westbrom under pressure in the first half.

"It was three defensive mistakes for three goals. They scored with their three attempts on target, which made it very difficult," 

"We controlled the game other than that. We had some chances and the question was how much character would we come out with second half. I always felt we could do it, but it is still two points lost.

"There was a lack of urgency in our game. We can move the ball quicker, the movement of the ball was slow in the first half. When we started to move it quicker and cut through them we became more dangerous.

"It needed a couple of changes, both players who came on did that. There were positives in our performance.

"But I would be stupid to say we can make three mistakes, give ourselves a mountain to climb and be happy with that.

"We have to accept the fact that this is a process in real time."
