Chelsea kept clean sheets for fun in the first half of the season, but the Blues have found it difficult to keep the same form in the defence.
Chelsea have only kept two clean sheets in the Premier League since January, and have conceded goals in nine consecutive Premier League games – making it the worst defensive run for the club since the era of Portuguese manager Andre Villas-Boas.
9 – Chelsea have conceded in 9 successive PL games within a single season for the first time since 2011-12 under Andre Villas-Boas. Lapse.

The good thing is we are still winning games and that’s all that matters. Interestingly, the Blues have won six of those nine games. Even Antonio Conte admitted that in his last press conference.
He said: “Yeah, but in this case I prefer to accept the win and not have a clean sheet. Now in this period since Hull City we are not able to have a clean sheet, but it happens.”
