Chelsea are some way from the Premier League record for consecutive clean sheets.
Since losing 3-0 at Arsenal, Chelsea have won five games, scored 16 goals and conceded none, moving them up to second in the Premier League.
However, they must win their next four games without conceding to equal the Premier League record for consecutive clean-sheet wins, set by Manchester United in the 2008/09 season.
United’s run started in the 1-0 win over Stoke on Boxing Day 2008, and ran for nine games until finally conceding at home to Blackburn’s Roque Santa Cruz on February 21. During that run they scored 17 times without reply.
Three sides have gone on an eight-game clean-sheet winning run (Chelsea 2004/05, Chelsea 2006/07 and Liverpool 2005/06), while five teams have gone six games.
