Chelsea have the joint best defence in the league, and former West Ham manager Alan Curbishley, believes Chelsea are the opposite of Liverpool and Manchester City.

Chelsea have conceded 18 goals in the league, while City, Arsenal and Liverpool have conceded 29, 28 and 30 respectively.

Football pundit Curbishley says Chelsea’s defence puts the Blues a cut above the rest.

“Conte’s trick was to swap to a three with wing-backs,” Curbishley told Sky Sports.

“What he has got is five defensive players – counting Moses and Alonso – who all enjoy defending.

“That’s different to the make up of Liverpool and Man City.

“Then you’ve got Chelsea’s two holding midfielders who do their share.”

Indeed, Chelsea are a different side from our title rivals.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
