Thiago Silva’s impressive impact at Stamford Bridge continues during Saturday’s Chelsea 3-1 win over Leeds United.
The veterans defender has helped to transform the Blues back four into a solid defensive until despite making a conspicuous Premier League debut.
Silva, 36, made his Chelsea debut in a 3-3 draw with West Brom back in September when the Brazilian international made a mistake at The Hawthorns.
The Blues have kept an incredible nine clean sheets in their last 13 games in all competitions to highlight third drastic improvement since October. Only Spur have a better defensive record than Chelsea in the Premier League this season despite conceding six time in their opening three top-flight fixtures.
However, since then, Silva and his team-mate have built some confidence at the heart of the Chelsea defence, perhaps helped by the arrival of Senegal goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
And against Leeds over weekend, Thiago Silva is among Blues players that delivered an outstanding performances, secured his side’s back-line alongside Kurt Zouma, who scored the Blues second goal with brilliant header.
