'The Monster' of the football - Thiago Silva

Isabelle da Silva, Thiago Silva’s wife, has revealed what a footballer spends after a game.

Chelsea hosted Preston North End in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. Mauricio Pochettino’s team won 4-0 thanks to goals in the second half from Silva, Armando Broja, Raheem Sterling, and Enzo Fernandez.

Silva’s wife Isabelle turned to social media after the match to upload a picture of their restaurant bill as they celebrated their victory in style.

The caption that accompanied the bill image read: “A simple family dinner.”

Silva and his family dined at London’s fancy Novikov restaurant and racked up a bill of £900.30. The Silva family ordered some of the most costly dishes at the Novikov restaurant, including a king crab leg for £95 and a peaking duck for £85.

Pochettino said after the game that Chelsea star Christopher Nkunku had experienced a further injury setback.

He said: “It’s really tough. The circumstances are really tough from the beginning of the season. Broja, Nkunku, Lavia, sometimes it is difficult to explain for the fans.

“Like Nkunku, we don’t want to put pressure on him, because we know after a long time injured always it is difficult to come back and start to perform. After six months away from the competition it is always tough.”

He continued: “Now he wasn’t involved because he suffered some problem in his hip after training yesterday and now we need to check and see if it will be possible for him to be ready for the next few games.

“That is the problem, they need game time to get their best and sometimes we cannot provide this game time to players who need to feel the competition, because in the end we are Chelsea, we need to win.”
