Chelsea duo shortlisted for EA Sports Team of the Year

Despite not speaking the language when he arrived, Thiago has established himself as a key part of the Chelsea side and has struck up a strong partnership with Kurt Zouma at the heart of defence, helping the Blues go 17 games unbeaten in all competitions earlier this season.

The Brazilian’s 2019/20 season saw him come within touching distance of winning the Champions League, with Paris-Saint Germain defeated by Bayern Munich in the final, but he did lead the Parisians to domestic success as they lifted the Ligue One title and the French Cup to ensure Thiago Silva left PSG with 23 trophies won during his eight years there.
