The English premier league returned once again this weekend after 2 weeks of international games. Chelsea opened the stage with an early kick off game against West Brom. Victory over Sam Alladyce men should have seen them move one step closer towards sealing their spot in the top four of the English premier league table.
The game began well for Tuchel's men as they enjoyed much of the possession, being the better team with an impressive record, it was already evident that they were not leaving that pitch with anything not less than 3 Points. After much missed chances, the blues finally took the lead in the 27th minute through Christian Pulisic who was very free in the opponent box to convert the rebound from Marcus Alonso's Freekick.
Two Minutes later, Tuchel's world was now left in turmoil as Thiago Silva was sent off after receiving his second yellow card for bringing down Pereira close to the box.
This decision to give him a second yellow card really angered a lot of Chelsea fans as what he did was what was necessary and had he failed to do it it would have led to a goal.
