Silva has been one of the Premier League’s best defenders this season. Coach Thomas Tuchel built his defensive framework around the 37-year-old, and it has always paid off. He was one of their best players before the Champions League win last season. In addition, he has kept six clean goals in 17 games this campaign despite some recent problems.
