Not many would have expected Chelsea to be where they are this season, especially with the Blues having lost 2-0 to Liverpool earlier on in the campaign.
The three goals conceded against West Brom and Southampton clearly showed a fragile defence that needed to be improved on. But since then, it’s been a different Chelsea side that has gone from strength to strength.
Chelsea are third in the league, just two points off Tottenham and Liverpool, and Frank Lampard’s side has been improving with each game.
Former Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has recently spoken of the quality in the Chelsea team, and he named three players who have been a revelation for the club. The trio of Kurt Zouma, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell were hailed for their impact in the Chelsea backline.
“I think Kurt Zouma, with obviously Thiago and Chilwell in there, have been a revelation,” Wright-Phillips told talkSPORT.
Chelsea have one of the best defence so far in the Premier League, having conceded only 11 goals in 11 games so far. This is a stunning stat if you consider the early season woes that the team faced.
