The defense of the Blues has shown surprising weaknesses in recent matches …
Chelsea had to work on Saturday to overcome Leeds. Led then joined to the score by the men of Marcelo Bielsa at the start of the last ten minutes, the Blues indeed snatched the victory in added time thanks to a penalty converted by Jorginho (3-2).
This victory nonetheless confirms the defensive difficulties of the Londoners for a week. Because these two goals conceded are in addition to the three conceded to West Ham (3-2) and Saint-Petersburg (3-3).
In three matches, Chelsea have conceded eight goals, as many as in their 18 previous matches.
