One of the key figures in Chelsea's win against Tottenham on Sunday was Thiago silva. The legendary centre-back who will shortly turn 37, through his performance, proved to viewers that age is only but a number.
The Brazilian icon starred in the 3-0 victory over Aston Villa last weekend and he managed to top that performance against Spurs by Scoring a goal and making sure the blues kept a clean sheet.

He gave Tottenham forwards a tough battle, to the extent rhat even Harry Kane couldn't record a shot on goal through out the game. The Brazilian Defender won all of his aerial duels, made seven ball recoveries, made six clearances, and did not commit a single foul.
For me, that is the epitome of a defensive masterclass.
