Chelsea did well to beat Fulham 2-0 at home on Saturday, and it was yet another defensive solid performance from the Blues.

Thomas Tuchel has turned Chelsea into a clean sheet giant, and scoring against the Blues is now a very difficult task.

Following the win against Fulham, Chelsea have now kept a shutout 30 times in all competitions this season. That is a figure unmatched by any other top-flight side in European football this term.

For Andreas Christensen, the Dane started on the right side of the back three, and the 25-year-old helped Chelsea keep another clean sheet, which is the eighth in succession the Blues have kept when Christensen has started in the Premier League.

Speaking after the game, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was pleased with the team’s performance as he said: “It was a very important win. I am very proud. Between two big semi-finals it is so hard to be full on, and we knew that Fulham gives everybody a hard time.

“They make you under-perform, work hard and suffer, and you can not get confused by the table. That’s why I have the highest respect for what we did today.”
