Frank Lebouef is a man who knows a thing or two about defending for Chelsea, and after yesterday’s win over Middlesbrough he picked out Thiago Silva for particular praise.
“He was absolutely perfect” the former Blue raved, after another masterclass from the Brazilian.
Thomas Tuchel had switched his team to a back 4, but so good was Silva that you might well have thought Chelsea still had 3 central defenders. Let’s hope he doesn’t have any problems in the international break, we need him right back in this form when we return.
