It was a frustrating afternoon at the Molineux Stadium on Sunday, as Chelsea played out a goalless draw with Wolves.

The Chelsea team lacked cohesion and fluidity against Wolves and the Blues attack seemed tame for most of the game.

However, former Tottenham star Jermaine Jenas was pleased with the performance of Thiago Silva despite the draw and hailed him as a classy player.

Speaking on BBC’s Match of the Day 2, the former England midfielder said: “It was a game that stunk of a 0-0 from the moment it kicked off really.

“But this guy [Thiago Silva] was so classy throughout, everything he did. He looked like he was playing in third or fourth gear at times.

“He’s never rushed and has quality on the ball with those forward passes. He did really well, it was a top performance from a top player.”
