THIAGO SILVA paid tribute to wife Belle after scoring in Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Tottenham.
It was the third goal scored by the Brazilian this season with his only other Premier League goal also against Spurs.
And as he did at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Thiago Silva kissed his ring finger and pointed it in the direction of his wife Belle – he also made a heart shape with his hand.
His wife noticed and shared her appreciation for the gesture above social media.
She said: “17 years later and I’m still the person on his mind when he scores. Love you.”
In response to a photo Belle posted of him, Thiago Silva wrote: “Love you.”
Belle has previously loved Chelsea’s support with a the video she took against Leicester last season.
She said with a big smile on her face: “We hate Tottenham! Chelsea!”

The Brazilian star couple has found a home at Stamford Bridge after 7 years in Paris and they have been together for 17 years.
Thiago Silva has signed up for the next season and one of Thomas Tuchel’s most important players.
But the game against Tottenham could have ended very differently for the Chelsea centre-back.
He was a bit lucky to be given free kick for a kick to his back from Harry Kane, who took advantage of Thiago Silva’s poor defense.
The Blues star can also be sent off for a series of fouls against Steven Bergwijn – Thiago Silva has struggled to deal with his direct style throughout.
