Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel guided the Blues to a 2-0 victory over Everton on Monday night at Stamford.
Following the victory over Everton, Tuchel became the first manager in Premier League history to see his side keep a clean sheet in each of his first five home games in charge in the competition.
The fact Tuchel didn’t even start the season with Chelsea makes the record even more special.
While Tuchel secured a personal piece of history on Monday, not conceding meant Chelsea have now kept five clean sheets in a row at home in the league for the first time since 2015.
The Blues have only conceded two goals in 11 games since the German took charge and Tuchel revealed the secret to Chelsea’s solid defence.
“It is about desire,” he said. “Defending is about effort. Sometimes it is necessary to defend midfield. It is about reliability, trust, courage, bravery.
“They guys around you must help you, principles, reliable, having your backs covered.”
