Chelsea Fc locked horns with Juventus at the Stamford Bridge in the UEFA Champions league return fixture and although Chelsea won by 4-0, one players name has been mentioned since the final whistle.
Chelsea FC needed a win to improve their chance of going top of the group where Juventus, Malmo and Zenit St. Petersburg fought for a place in the next round of the UCL.
In the first half, former Chelsea and Spanish striker Alvaro Morata on a break lofted the ball over Edouard Mendy with the ball goal bound.
Thiago Silva provided a piece of magic himself at the end of the pitch making a stunning goal line clearance which denied ex-Chelsea striker Morata from scoring for Juventus.
The moment that got some fans off their seats and cheering the Brazilian on. Thiago was nonchalant with his defending all night against Juventus and his superb individual season continues.
At the age of 37 years, Thiago is still looking sharp with perfect timing and game reading and has contributed to Edouard Mendy’s clean sheet record anytime he is in the starting lineups.
