Thiago Silva made Chelsea’s history with his goal against Tottenham on Sunday.
The 36-year-old defender became Chelsea’s second-oldest goal scorer when he led his side at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Thiago Silva turned 37 on Wednesday and only one man scored for the Blues at that age – a special Didier Drogba.
The Chelsea legend scored against Leicester in 2015 at the age of 37 years and 49 days.
There is still plenty of time in the season to break this record, even though he scored only two goals in the last term.
However, if he maintains his level of performance against the Spurs, Thomas Tachel will likely pick him at the center of his five-man defense.
Thiago Silva kept Hurricane silent to save another clean sheet – the third of his four shows this season.
Chelsea could have trailed in the first half, but Thiago Silva was crucial to winning the opening goal.
