Since then, Pochettino has confirmed Thiago Silva came to him to discuss the situation and attempted to close the chapter by saying he had a brilliant relationship with the 39-year-old defender. 

Pochettino said when asked about the post and if he's had words with his defender: "I think the important thing is he came and wanted to talk with me.

"And, of course, he knows me after more than 10 years ‒ who I am. We are a very strong coaching staff and [he knows] the way we operate.

"Of course, he came to talk and we talked and I think that was private. And that’s it. It’s a private thing to keep inside."

Chelsea take on Aston Villa this evening in the FA Cup but the build up to the game has been dominated by Belle's apology and explanation on why she lost her cool after the defeat over the weekend. 

She posted again on her X on Wednesday: "I’m sorry that my personal outburst as a passionate Chelsea fan has caused such an impact. I’m passionate about the team, I thrive on victories and I’m saddened by defeats.

"We all want the same thing, a winning team, come on Chelsea."

Chelsea have not conceded four goals in three consecutive games since 1989 and will be desperate to avoid that and return to winning ways this evening at Villa Park.
