Chelsea star Thiago Silva quarantines upstairs away from family at home as he waits in Covid isolation

THIAGO SILVA is following the doctor’s orders as he quarantines following his positive Covid test.

The Chelsea defender has shut himself upstairs away from his family to wait out his isolation period.

Silva missed the Carabao Cup semi-final against Tottenham on Wednesday after the Blues confirmed he had tested positive for coronavirus.

Fellow first-teamer N’Golo Kante was also ruled out of the first-leg clash due to the illness.

Posting on her Instagram account, Silva’s wife Isabelle assured followers her hubby was doing well despite the positive result.

She posted: “He is fine without symptoms and in quarantine.

“All of the house (have been) tested and are negative. Amen.”

She shared two short clips showing herself delivering water to Silva as he kept himself busy by appearing to tidy his drawers.
