Chelsea summer signing praised for bringing much-needed calmness to Blues

Garth Crooks has praised Chelsea defender Thiago Silva for the much-needed calm he's brought to the Blues' backline. The veteran Brazilian joined Chelsea on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain this summer. Silva has recovered from a nightmare Premier League debut against West Brom, looking rock-solid for Chelsea in their 0-0 draw with Manchester United at the weekend. On Silva’s performance, Crooks said: “Chelsea have not had a player at the back like this for some time. Defenders don’t come more accomplished than Silva. The former Brazil international has brought a desperately needed calm to the Blues defensive line up. His positional sense and reading of the game are his specialities. “Had it not been for Silva, his former Paris St-Germain team-mate Edinson Cavani would have almost certainly found himself on the scoresheet. At 36, Silva looks like he’s never been in a pub in his life. What a pity for Chelsea he’s not a few years younger.”
