SPOTTED: One Chelsea Player Stays to Console Fans After Brentford Defeat
Marca reports that Chelsea's struggles in the Premier League continue, as the team managed by Lampard suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Brentford, which was met with boos from the crowd at Stamford Bridge.
Cesar Azpilicueta, a long-standing player for Chelsea, scored an own goal in the first half, which was compounded by a precise finish from Mbuembo, securing a win for Brentford.
The defeat highlighted a lack of attacking creativity and confidence in the Chelsea team, who were outplayed by their opponents.
Following Chelsea's painful defeat against Brentford on Wednesday night, Thiago Silva was the last player to leave the pitch, as per Tribuna.
As he walked towards the Shed End, the Brazilian player acknowledged the fans by applauding them, prompting the supporters to respond with the "Oh Thiaaaagoo Silvaaa!!" chant.
Despite defending well against Brentford, Silva had an unfortunate moment when a shot deflected through his foot and past Kepa, resulting in Brentford's second goal of the night.
After 32 games, Chelsea is currently in 11th place in the Premier League standings, with only 10 points separating them from the relegation zone.
