Arsenal legend Paul Merson heaped praise on Thiago Silva’s outstanding performance in Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over Burnley.
Merson hailed the Brazilian centre-back as a Rolls-Royce.
“Thiago Silva, you thought tester today, Burnley away with freezing cold gale force wind,” Merson said on Sky Sports News.
“Rolls-Royce. Absolutely outstanding.
“Had both players in his pocket. Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes didn’t go near him in the end he was that dominant.”
