Chelsea’s defence has been an issue this season as the Blues were beaten by a resurgent Everton side 3-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

Chelsea’s defence have struggled this season as we’ve already conceded 24 goals in 15 league games and a whopping 17 goals conceded away from home.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has now admitted that the team must improve in the defensive area.

“Defence is an area where we have to improve but we are not strong enough in both boxes right now,” he said.

“We are conceding a lot and when we arrive in the dangerous areas, we are not clinical enough to score our chances.

“It’s a major problem because in football the key is to be clinical in both boxes and at the moment we are not strong enough in both of them so we have to work on that.”
