With his goal against Tottenham, Thiago Silva is now Chelsea's second oldest player behind Didier Drogba to score in the Premier League which is an incredible record.

"Thiago Silva, what a man, what a player. Outstanding. He almost scored twice. He was so strong; Deliveries were good for his goals.

Thiago Silva breaks record at Chelsea
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Brazilian defender Thiago Silva is now Chelsea’s second oldest scorer in the English Premier League after he headed-home in their 3-0 win over Tottenham over the weekend.
The star turns 37 on Wednesday, September 22, and only Ivorian legend Didier Drogba is the oldest man to have scored a goal in the Blue colours.
Drogba’s last goal for the Stamford Bridge outfit in England came against Leicester City in 2015 when he was at the age of 37 years and 49 days.
With plenty of time left in the season for the Silva to break that record, he needs to improve his effort upfront having managed just two goals last season.
If Silva continues the way he played against Spurs, he might change Thomas Tuchel’s perception and then break into the center of the club’s defence.
