Chelsea are yet to keep a clean sheet this season under new boss Frank Lampard.

After five Premier League games and one Super Cup clash, Lampard’s young side have been unable to keep a clean sheet, conceding a whopping 11 goals in the league alone.

Lampard reverted to playing three at the back to help shore up the team’s defence against Wolves, but Chelsea failed to keep a clean sheet still as the Blues conceded two goals in that game.

Fikayo Tomori who started for the Blues against Wolves has now revealed that the clean sheet will come soon as the team continues to win games.

Tomori who scored a wonder goal against Wolves said: “Winning games breeds confidence and keeps the team happy. At times we have played well in patches but not managed to see the whole game through.

“We managed to play better in longer spells. We know clean sheets will come. We defended a lot better as a team. We didn’t really concede any sloppy chances.

“Obviously we are disappointed to have conceded two goals, but we try to think positive, the manager tries to keep us positive in training and off the pitch, in meetings.”

Tomori also assured that Lampard’s tactics will come off at the end, and that the team trusts in the manager.

“He’s a legend at the club so he has the respect of the players already,” continued Tomori.

“His management skills are very good. I had him last year and he’s a very good talker, a very good man-manager, and you can see we want to play for him, want to win games and implement his style of play. We’re working hard day in, day out to try and do that.”
