The Blues have won their last 11 premier league matches, this season the Blues have a factious record at the back.
The special one Jose Mourinho admits that the Blues are the favorites for this year’s EPL title contenders and they have a tight defense this year and their back four is doing formidable job for them.
Having won their last all 11 matches the Chelsea side is sitting at the Numero Uno position of the EPL table and they are six points clear from the second spot and 13 points ahead than Manchester United.
In their last six matches they win four matches by 1-0, and this season they have nine clean sheets so far, they lost their last match against Arsenal by 3-0 back in September.
The special one believes that because of their proclivity in their defense they are implausible to drop too many points in their upcoming matches.
The special one said that: "You have to be honest and say that is very difficult,"
"It's not just the difference in points, it's also the Chelsea philosophy of playing.
"They score one goal and they win. They defend a lot. They defend well.
They are winning and, in the last 20 minutes, they bring defenders in.
"They don't care what people say, what people think. They just want to win. And, because of that, I don't see them losing many points."
This season the Manchester United has struggled earlier in their matches and after that they manage to turn themselves up in their recent matches and Mourinho is confident 2017 will be positive for them.
He added: "2017 will be better than 2016. I think we are really together. There is a sense of unity between us and the fans. I'm loving a lot that feeling."
