Chelsea defeated Southampton 4-1 at the St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday, and it was a truly dominant performance from Frank Lampard’s side.

Despite Chelsea’s quality performance against the Saints, the Blues weren’t able to keep a clean sheet – which has been a recurrent theme for Frank Lampard’s side.

Chelsea have only kept one clean sheet this season in all competitions, and Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed that his only bad note from the Southampton clash is the goal conceded as he stressed the desire to keep clean sheets in every game.

“I would like to have had a clean sheet because as a defender I am happy when we don’t concede goals,” Azpilicueta emphasised.

“We have improved because we have been conceding less goals than previously, but we can do even better. Attacking wise we scored four goals and had a few chances, even if we didn’t play maybe as well as other games. The game was quite messy; it was tough to keep the ball because they put a lot of pressure on us. For moments we did well.

“We are improving. We knew at the beginning sometimes we were playing well enough to win games, but we were a bit unlucky. The team has been working hard. At the start of the season we had the belief and the confidence in everyone. We are starting to get results, but we are still improving and we know we can go even higher.”
