Chelsea’s win rate with this player is just 36 percent with him and 86 percent without him
Data indicates that Chelsea have experienced greater triumphs this season in the absence of Thiago Silva, a beloved figure among fans.
Since joining in 2020, the esteemed centre-back has been instrumental to the team, contributing to victories in the Champions League, Super Cup, and Club World Cup, and has earned immense respect at Stamford Bridge for his formidable displays.
Mauricio Pochettino opted to leave out Silva for Wednesday’s 3-1 FA Cup victory over Aston Villa, with the Brazilian only coming on for the final 10 minutes.
According to WhoScored.com via talkSPORT, Chelsea’s win rate when Silva starts stands at 36 per cent, a far cry from the 86 per cent when he has been left out of action.
The Blues have also lost 40 per cent of the matches he has played, with his figure dropping to just 14 per cent without him.
Chelsea concede 0.71 goals per game without the Brazilian and when he does play, this rises to 1.72.
Silva has started in 25 matches for Chelsea this season in all competitions and been left out of the first XI on seven occasions.
