Chelsea misplaced to Liverpool within the League Cup remaining on Sunday narrowly lacking out on penalties, however there was one participant on the dropping crew who fairly merely by no means deserves to be on the dropping facet and definitely didn’t need to be on Sunday.
Thiago Silva is simply the kind of participant who constantly places in at the very least an 8/10 efficiency each single sport he performs, more often than not even larger. Sunday within the remaining he was a ten/10 for my part, and he’s the best instance of a soccer participant in world soccer proper now. At 37-years previous he’s simply for me the most effective on the planet, he’s on the prime of his commerce and enjoying a few of the finest soccer he has ever performed.
However for me, soccer isn’t nearly your capacity and high quality, it is usually largely about your need and depth that you just play with. Simply research this clip under of a second within the Liverpool sport the place Thiago Silva completely busted a intestine to get again and clear the ball off the road to see precisely what I imply right here.
Have a look at his beginning place firstly of the video, look what number of gamers are forward of him together with the quick N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic, and simply have a look at Silva coast previous all of them and get to the objective first. Trevoh Chalobah is a participant who additionally performs with numerous need, however have a look at the distinction between him and Silva. Chalobah principally offers up which is only a lack of expertise, however Silva is aware of if he will get to the road he has a superb probability of stopping a objective and he solely had one factor in his thoughts.
That is truly ridiculous. Have a look at the place 37 yr previous Thiago Silva begins & how he manages to get again on the road forward of every other chelsea participant. pic.twitter.com/r2RqieXnsS

That is what makes him standout as a participant, and that is what places a participant on the forefront and is the distinction between simply being a top quality participant and being a completely world class one, which Silva proves each week that he’s.
There isn’t a doubt in my thoughts that although he has solely been at Chelsea for a few seasons, he’s already a Blues legend and that can solely improve the longer he stays right here. The truth is, can we simply signal him for an additional 5-years? As a result of all jokes apart I’ve little doubt he’d nonetheless be doing this kind of stuff above nicely into his 40s given half the prospect!
What a person, what a participant, and what a primary instance to all younger gamers arising by means of the ranks in soccer everywhere in the globe.
