Thomas Tuchel said he could see up close and personal today in Burnley’s small dressing room how focused Chelsea defender Thiago Silva was before a game.

Kai Havertz (two), Reece James and Christian Pulisic were all on the scoresheet for 45 minutes in the second half.

He claimed the centre-back is the ultimate professional who has real focus on him today.

“He is so professional. The changing rooms aren’t that big here, which isn’t a problem, but when you’re there so close to the team, you can see how focused they are and how professionally they prepare for every game. That’s why he can play like that,” Tuchel said. noted.

“In a game where you have so many long balls and so many second balls, and where you rely so much on the quality of your first touch if you win a duel in the air, that makes a huge difference and that’s what he does.

“He’s very impressive but I can tell you he works very hard and on top of that he’s a fantastic person and a great character in the dressing room.”
