Leeds United vs Chelsea: Tuchel Names Best Position for Thiago Silva


Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has named the best position for defender, Thiago Silva.

According to Tuchel, the best position for Silva in the Chelsea squad is the ‘middle’ in a back three defence.

The German said this on Friday ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Leeds United on Saturday.

“They [Thiago Silva and Andreas Christensen] can play together for sure,” Tuchel said as quoted by Chelsea’s official website.

“I am very sure that Christensen can play on both sides of the back three, and they can also play together as centre-backs in a back four as well.

“The position in the middle is the best for Thiago, but Andreas is also on the same level, and he can also play on both sides, so there is no problem.”

Meanwhile, Silva will miss the Leeds clash after he suffered a “setback” in training.
