Chelsea defender Thiago Silva was sent off in the first half of Chelsea’s 5-2 defeat to West Brom on Saturday.
It was Silva’s first appearance for Chelsea in two months following his injury against Tottenham Hotspur.
“Lessons need to be learned from difficult days, so that the next day is the beginning of a new beginning,” Silva wrote on Instagram.
“I believe it was not an expulsion move, I haven’t seen the video yet, but the referee made his decision and we can’t change what happened.
“I assume my responsibility for the expulsion, which unfortunately directly affected the result of the game.
“Now we have to join our forces, because Wednesday it will be another battle. Come on Chelsea.”
