Two Chelsea players made the talkSPORT Premier League Team of the Season so far.

Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell and Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva made the list after their brilliant start to the season for the Blues.

Explaining why Chilwell made the list, talkSPORT said: “Adding an attacking full-back to a weak Blues backline had the potential to very wrong for Frank Lampard.

“Instead, thanks to the addition of Edouard Mendy and Thiago Silva, improving the central defensive area and their goalkeeping issue, Chilwell has been able to continue his marauding style and prove himself a vital addition.

“In just five matches he’s got two goals and two assists, while he’s getting the ball into the final third and the penalty area more than he ever did at Leicester.

“A risky move appears to be coming off a treat at Stamford Bridge.”

On Silva, talkSPORT added: “It was calculated risk for the Blues but landing the 36-year-old Brazilian has been a stroke of genius – and it was a free transfer too.

“Some believed, after so long at Paris Saint-Germain, the intensity of the Premier League might be too much for him but he’s proving the doubters wrong already.

“He’s added a composure the Chelsea backline has lacked for some time and his leadership has helped his teammates up their game as well.

“A goal against Sheffield United last time out capped his start to life at Stamford Bridge.”
