Chelsea have kept just one clean sheet this season, the 2-0 win over Brighton last Saturday.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer blames Chelsea’s leaky defence on the set-up of the team.

He told Goal: “Chelsea are conceding more goals this season but that is down to the set-up as well.

“It is hard.

“You need a team to work well together, to operate as 11 defending, not just the back four and the keeper.

“It is unusual to see Chelsea let in so many.

“But they are in a transitional period, there are inexperienced players learning their trade.

“They are doing very well but part of the sacrifice is you’re leaving yourself more open and let opponents have more chances.”
