helsea defender Thiago Silva is wary facing AC Milan’s attacking players for tonight’s Champions League encounter.
Thiago Silva expects to be tested by the likes of Rafael Leao and former Blues teammate Olivier Giroud.
He said: “The forward line of AC Milan is very impressive, and the way they perform means tomorrow it is going to be a very difficult match. It will be difficult for us to defend. For sure, with Leao, we’ll have to be very focused and make sure he can’t get the ball. If those players give him the ball, they will be dangerous because if he gets the ball, they can score, and it’s not only him because Giroud is in the box.
“So it is a challenge and difficult forward line. It’s not going to be easy, but that is why we have to be focused. Theo is a very good player, one of the best in the side right. He is also very good at defending. We have to be careful of the whole squad because a good team is not only one, two, three good players.
“It’s the whole squad who work well, so we have to be focused on all of them.”
