Chelsea beat Tottenham 3-0 today in a game which saw the Blues turn things around at half time after a poor opening period.
One man who performed for the full 90 was Thiago Silva. In the first period he was a rock at the back against Spurs, in the second he scored a goal to set his team on the road to victory.
He was centimetres away from adding a second.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Thomas Tuchel called the Brazilian “outstanding” and hailed his man of the match performance.
