The Brazil international was forced to withdraw from the London derby early after getting hurt trying to clear the ball

Thiago Silva limped off the pitch with a suspected leg injury in the first half of Chelsea’s clash with Tottenham.

The Brazilian remained on the ground in pain after overstretching to clear a ball just after the half-hour mark at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Silva was unable to continue after receiving treatment from Chelsea’s medical staff on the pitch, with Andreas Christensen subsequently brought on as his replacement.

The 36-year-old was making his 17th Premier League appearances for the Blues since joining the club on a free transfer, and his third under new head coach Thomas Tuchel.
