Thiago Silva’s wife, Belle, was at it again with a message on social media, just moments after Chelsea suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat to Arsenal.

Mauricio Pochettino started a fairly youthful side against the Premier League-chasing Gunners but was made to pay as his team was comprehensively beaten.

Leandro Trossard opened the scoring in the fourth minute by beating Chelsea goalkeeper, Djordje Petrovic, at his near post before the North Londoners ran riot in the second half.

Ben White turned in his side’s second after the Blues failed to clear a corner, with Kai Havertz netting twice in eight minutes against his former side.

White then wrapped up a perfect evening for himself and his side with a lovely looped effort over Petrovic as the Gunners secured three points and boosted their goal difference to +56.

Silva’s wife slams Pochettino

Thiago Silva was eventually introduced to the game, coming off the bench after 78 minutes to offer some experience to the youngsters.

After the game, the veteran defender’s wife shared three emojis on social media, deciphered as 'see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil' - an indication that she was coy about speaking her true feelings about the game.

In February, when Chelsea suffered a 4-2 defeat to Wolves, Belle openly called for Pochettino's sacking, saying, 'It’s time to change. If you wait any longer it will be too late'.

She later retracted her statement and apologised, saying she was simply passionate about her husband’s team.

Belle Silva’s past outbursts

While Belle Silva’s latest tweet was subtle, that hasn’t always been the case in the past.

She once went viral for openly calling out former Blues striker, Timo Werner.

"This is karma, guys. Every team I go to there is a striker who keeps missing goals… this Werner, what is his name?''
In a different video, she was quoted saying, "We need a goal, we need to win this match but my attackers don't want to score, I don't know why they don't score."

Opposition players were also not safe as she once called out Andy Robertson with a brutal comparison to Ben Chilwell, according to Daily Star.

"Chilwell is better than you dude, you even lost to Southampton," she seansationally said in 2021.

Meanwhile, Silva's contract is set to expire at the end of this season, and the Brazilian will likely walk away as a free agent.

He has been heavily linked with a move back to his home country, with Fluminense said to be showing interest.

Pochettino on Lukaku

Elsewhere, Sports Brief reported on Pochettino's latest take on Romelu Lukaku and whether the Belgian has a future at the club.

Prior to the game against Arsenal, Poch was asked about the current Roma loanee and his response might have left a door open.

The Chelsea boss suggested the 30-year-old could still have a place at Stamford Bridge, with Lukaku's spell in Italy almost done.
