Thiago Silva speaks in Crystal Palace programme

‘I’m not here just to go through the motions, or just for the experience – I’m here to win,’ he told us.

‘I want everyone to be very clear about that: I’m going to give my all to make sure that Chelsea win.

‘I didn’t come here to dine out in London or visit the tourist sites. I came to play football, to work, and that’s what I’m preparing for. I’m certain, with the group of players we’ve got and a coach who’s a natural leader, that we’ll be in the fight for every piece of silverware going this year.’

Blues head coach Frank Lampard and captain Cesar Azpilicueta both talk you through recent goings on in their usual columns and there is also the chance to hear from the newest member of Frank Lampard’s coaching staff, as we catch up with Anthony Barry.
