Jordan Ayew Is Upset That Thiago Silva's Intentional Handball Did Not Result In A Dismissal

The premeditated handball by Thiago Silva against Crystal Palace did not result in a red card, which has angered Ghanaian forward Jordan Ayew.

The 38-year-old defender got into a fight with Ayew during the first half when the Blues were on the back foot.

Just within the west Londoners' half, the two engaged in a scuffle. Ayew would have had plenty of space to run in behind Chelsea's backline when Silva went down under pressure from the Palace forward and, in classic modern football fashion, the Brazil international clawed the ball away from Ayew.

The club's website cites Ayew as saying, "I don't understand - this year is so inconsistent." Although I'm at a loss for words, I don't want to say too much. It’s the past and my purpose is to focus on the next game.

"The Premier League is vicious, and it's the game. That, in my perspective, marked the game's turning moment, and after that, it was just football.

"We ought to have argued our case. We weren't far, but we still need to keep working, moving forward, and striving to win games.

We just need to concentrate on winning our next game and move forward from there.

For the Eagles this season, Ayew has made seven league appearances and has contributed two assists.
