Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva scored Chelsea’s first goal as the Blues beat West Ham 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
The Brazilian defender set a Premier League record after his header from a Mason Mount corner against West Ham.
Silva’s goal against West Ham means Chelsea have scored more goals from corners than any other team in the Premier League this season (8), with three of these goals being headers from Mason Mount assists.
What a signing the Brazilian has been for Chelsea. Not only has he played a pivotal role in sorting out what was once a worryingly leaky defence; he’s popping up at the other end of the pitch, too.
