It’s no mean feat keeping clean sheets in this wacky new Premier League season, especially when you play away at Old Trafford, where penalties tend to flow like the rain did today.
So a team like Chelsea who have struggled defensively this season can definitely be proud of keeping the United goals to 0, as Frank Lampard pointed out in his press conference after the game.
He admitted the team could do better in attack, but also insisted we had to praise the things they did well – including the “very good” clean sheet.
