Thiago Silva watches Chelsea beat Krasnodar from home in leg recovery trousers… after family bowling trip on day off

THIAGO SILVA watched on from home as Chelsea beat Krasnodar after enjoying an extra day off with his family.

Frank Lampard rested the Brazilian, 36, for the 3,500-mile round-trip having only just introduced the defender to his squad.

While Chelsea dispatched their Russian opponents, Silva sat in a hotel room back in the UK whilst wearing a leg recovery device.

The high-tech trousers are designed to massage muscles in a variety of settings, reducing soreness and improving circulation.

Silva captioned the picture, ‘Post training recovery’, while using the device designed by Italian company Globus.

The trousers have become commonplace in top-level sport, across football, cricket, boxing and MMA with the likes of Anthony Joshua and Gareth Bale previously pictured in them.

Silva impressed fans with his performance in the 0-0 draw against Manchester United on the weekend, with Chelsea now keeping three consecutive clean sheets.

Earlier in the day, the centre-back was pictured enjoying a spot of bowling in central London with his wife and two kids.

Isabelle Silva posted a video of their day out, including a pair of strikes from the Chelsea star’s first two attempts.

During the game, Isabelle and the kids had a swim in the hotel pool while Silva watched from their room.

The family also enjoyed a meal out on the player’s day off

Chelsea made short work of Krasnodar, aided by a goalkeeping error to go ahead via Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Timo Werner slammed home a second from the spot after Jorginho’s earlier penalty miss.

Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic scored late to earn a 4-0 win, Chelsea’s first victory of their Champions League campaign.
