Silva worried by PSG form

Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva admits that he is concerned by the Ligue 1 champions' form, following their 2-0 defeat to Toulouse on Friday.

The Parisians have endured a tough start to the 2016/17 campaign – having already recorded two defeats in their opening seven Ligue 1 games.

Unai Emery's side were made to pay for a lacklustre showing as goals from Yann Bodiger and Jimmy Durmaz secured all three points for Toulouse.

"Yes, it was difficult, it was not a good match for us. We didn't manage to play, to find the spaces. They deserved to win," Silva told Goal.

"It's not usual to have two defeats like that, but that's football. We have to stay calm.

"What worries me a bit is that we lost some of our game. I think that, gradually, it'll come back."

The Brazil international defender highlighted the difference between this season and the last, whilst concluding that Toulouse were simply better on the day.

"Last year we started the season well and finished it better. This year we haven't started well, but the season is long," he added.

"You have to think as a team. For now, we have to think about how we can change things.

"It's hard to stand here and talk about referees, et cetera. It's difficult to talk with them, but that's not an excuse. Toulouse had a good game and we didn't play well, but we know we can do better," he concluded.
