Sherwood hails Thiago Silva impact at Chelsea

Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has quickly been won over by Chelsea defender Thiago Silva.

Sherwood insists 36-year-old free transfer Thiago Silva is Chelsea manager Frank Lampard's finest ever signing.

The Brazil centre-back has easily kept Antonio Rudiger out of the Blues' side, while fellow summer arrivals Kai Havertz and Timo Werner have struggled with injuries.

Sherwood told The Kelly and Wrighty Show: "One thing's for sure. They've signed someone in Thiago Silva who is his best signing, without doubt.

"Not only is he a great player with experience and strolls through games he also makes Kurt Zouma next to him better.

"I think [Ben] Chilwell and [Reece] James in the full-back areas are fantastic, [N'Golo] Kante's playing in his correct position now."
