EPL: Classy, top performance – Jermaine Jenas singles out Chelsea star after draw with Wolves

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Jermaine Jenas, has singled defender Thiago Silva for praise following Chelsea’s Premier League 0-0 draw with Wolves at the weekend.

Jenas described Silva’s display against Wolves as ‘classy and top performance’, adding that the Brazilian did really well against the host.

Chelsea fell further behind Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League title race as they failed to beat Wolves at Molineux on Sunday.

Chelsea’s starting XI was strong, but Thomas Tuchel’s side failed to create many clear-cut chances, with Wolves having an early goal ruled out for offside.

Speaking on BBC’s Match of the Day 2, Jenas said: ‘It was a game that stunk of a 0-0 from the moment it kicked off really.

“But this guy [Thiago Silva] was so classy throughout everything he did. He looked like he was playing in third or fourth gear at times.

“He’s never rushed and has quality on the ball with those forward passes. He did really well, it was a top performance from a top player.”
