Chelsea are currently third in the Premier League, and the Blues have done well so far, having lost one game in the Premier League this season.
The season didn’t start without some hitches, with three goals conceded against West Brom and Southampton, and two conceded against Liverpool. However, since then, Chelsea have since picked up good form and the defence has been solid.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed Chelsea’s form and insists that Thiago Silva is the man pulling the strings.
“What can I say… Chelsea are on absolute fire, they are flying. Frank Lampard has got his team confident, they go a down goal, it’s no problem, they are confident,” Rio Ferdinand said on his YouTube channel, Five.
“And who is at the base of that? The foundation of that, for me, would have to be the man Thiago Silva. He’s come in, the experience [he’s got], played in big games all around the world.
“I think they go a goal down or things ain’t ticking for them but he sits there at the back, everyone looks to him for inspiration. Listen, Chelsea I think are in it for the long run, they’re going to be there [challenging for titles] at the end.”
