Chelsea and Brazilian defender, Thiago Silva is out injured and according to confirmed reports, he will be out for weeks. This is bad news for the Blues who have had the veteran defender as their best Player during this terrible run of form they have been in.
The former PSG star's injury is a major reason why another defender ironically just returning from injury, Wesley Fofana must step up as he is an expensive signing from Leicester city and he fully knows the rigors of the EPL.
Chelsea need the French defender to be at his best from now up until the end of the current season as it looks very likely that Silva will not play for Chelsea until the campaign is almost over. Fofana has the quality hence why Chelsea signed him and he must work well alongside other defenders in Kalidou Koulibaly and Benoit Badiashile in order to save Chelsea's season from the defensive side of things.
