Thiago Silva injured make a mockery of careful rotation plicy

Well, just as we were getting our players back fit, we’ve lost another one.

Thiago Silva was rested last weekend to keep him fresh for this game against Tottenham and the match against Dortmund in midweek. He now looks certain to miss both after jarring his knee in th early stages here at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Harry Kane landed on the joint accidentally and appeared to overextend it a bit. Silva winced right away and never looked comfortable, despite attempting to continue after some treatment on the pitch.

If we’re trying to be positive, we’d say the fact that he was even able to play on at all reveals it’s probably not a severe problem or a tear, and more of a strain.

Silva is a medical miracle in his own right, but once you’re as old as he is, even smaller problems will always get fans more worried.
