Chelsea started this season like they ended the last – attacking well and defending horribly.
It was a situation that needed to be resolved, and if you look at October, it looks a lot like we’ve made progress.
Stats website WhoScored’s team for October has a back 4 featuring 3 Chelsea players – Kurt Zouma, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell.
Now that’s what you call a turnaround. Who would have thought, a month ago the best defence in the Premier League would be three Chelsea players and…. Serge Aurier?!
Maybe we shouldn’t pay too much attention to this after all…
