After a shaky start on his Chelsea debut in the 3-3 draw at West Brom, Silva has become one of the most important men in Frank Lampard's side.
Rarely flustered and composed on the ball, the defender has belied his 36 years to enhance a reputation previously made at AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.
While he's impressing on the pitch, his other half Isabelle da Silva has been making headlines off it.

When Liverpool left-back Robertson shared a clip on Tiktok of him beating Jorginho with a piece of skill during their clash with Chelsea earlier this season, Isabelle wrote: "Chilwell is better than u dude you even lost to Southampton."
But she wasn't done there, also taking a shot at Spurs.
Repliying to a post which asked the follower to name their team's biggest rival without naming them, she wrote: "My football team's rival has no trophies."
Lampard has admitted he was 'tentative' about bringing Silva to Stamford Bridge because of his age.
The Chelsea boss said last month: "I remember playing in the Premier League at 36 and I wasn't playing like Thiago is.
"I was in and out of the team, I couldn't play week in, week out because I could feel it at that stage in my career.
"I was a bit tentative with bringing Thiago here on that front, as I knew he was a fantastic player, but I wasn't sure how he would take to the demands of the Premier League.
"He's been fantastic and maybe I shouldn't have been surprised because from working with him every day you see up close just how much he puts in.
"He prepares so well, he's so dedicated, his reading of the game is fantastic and his desire to win headers and compete with anyone is superb.
"He's really studious and I think it's clear he will go on and become a manager if he wants to be. He's been a great addition for us both on and off the pitch."
