Chelsea legend John Terry has hailed Thiago Silva after the Brazilian’s superb display in the 3-0 victory over Tottenham.

The 36-year-old centre-half led from the back as the Blues eased to a comfortable victory over their London rivals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Silva opened the scoring with a towering header four minutes into the second-half with N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger also getting on the score sheet.

Former Blues captain Terry paid tribute to all three goal scorers on Instagram but reserved special praise for the veteran Brazilian.

‘Thiago Silva, what a man, what a player,’ Terry wrote on his Instagram stories after watching the Chelsea star head his side into the lead.

Thomas Tuchel also praised Silva for his key role in north London.

‘Outstanding’, said Tuchel.

‘He almost scored twice. He was so strong; Deliveries were good for his goals.

‘We are very happy that he was able to score to open the game for us today.

‘But the performance even in the first half was outstanding, fantastic. Well deserved, he was outstanding today.’

Chelsea’s win moves them level on points with Liverpool and Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table having taken 13 points from a possible 15.
