(Video): Thiago Silva thumps in header to give Chelsea 1-0 lead over Spurs

Thiago Silva had a brilliant first half defensively, and now he’s made the difference in attack too.

The Brazilian made a late run at a corner, and was able to find a yard to leap and meet Marcos Alonso’s cross.

His header was perfectly placed beyond Hugo Lloris’ despairing dive, and now Chelsea have a (slightly underserved) lead over Tottenham.

Now Silva will have to get back to his defensive duties to make sure his team keep their lead.
