Chelsea have conceded at least a goal in the last 11 league games and the last seven games in all competitions, and the last time Chelsea didn’t concede a Premier League goal was against Hull City back in January.

Since the 2-0 win against Hull, Chelsea have conceded in every league game and yet again conceded two against Southampton.

Speaking about Chelsea’s inability to keep a clean sheet in recent times, Antonio Conte said: “When you keep a clean sheet it is a great achievement for your team. We have to continue to work and to try to improve our mistakes. At this part of the season it is important you see the positives and negatives during the game and then to find the best solution. We conceded but also we scored after a corner, but in football every day it is very important to improve your team.”

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.
