Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo insists their defence has held up without the suspended John Terry.
Chelsea have shipped a whopping 12 goals in the five matches Terry has not played in the last month.
Di Matteo said somewhat unconvincingly: "They've had some good games as well. Against Newcastle, they had a clean sheet.
"It's not just the defenders - I want to emphasise that.
"It's a team responsibility to defend."
