Thiago Silva is happy after seeing his side topping the group in the Champions League.
Thiago Silva sends a positive message to Chelsea teammates after winning the Champions League tie against RB Salzburg. The Blues secured a 2-1 win over Austria’s side.
The victory not only ensured their path to the next round of the Champions League, but they will go there as group winners.
Mateo Kovacic and Kai Havertz scored goals in either half to complete the job in a game where the home side did play their part and had chances to level things.
They have topped the group so they can avoid some heavyweights in the last 16 stages of this competition.
There are three Premier League games from now till the World Cup break. Chelsea dropped points in the last two games so Graham Potter would expect to finish off on a high before the team disperses.
They have an away game against Brighton and Hove Albion. It will be the first time back at the Amex Stadium for Potter since leaving the Seagulls to join Chelsea last month.
Thiago Silva’s contract will expire at the end of this season. A few weeks ago, he indicated that he will decide on an extension after discussing it with the family.
