Do you realise it's now been 13 hours without conceding a goal at the Bridge. That's 781 minutes which eclipses the old record of 675 minutes. Can you remember the last person to score against us?............John Carew for Villa back in March when we beat them 7-1!.

It's some record in anyones book. You have to think back to the summer where we were constantly being linked with David Luiz of Benfica who wanted silly money to replace long time favourite Ricardo Carvalho who left the club. Nobody came to the club and the season started with just three recognised first team centre halves in John Terry, Alex and Branislav Ivanovic with the young Jeffery Bruma as backup.

With Ashley Cole, Yuri Zhirkov and Paulo Ferriera all featuring this season so far (Zhirkov more as a midfielder) and now Bosingwa being back means we have quality in depth and didn't really need to worry.

We have been outstanding at the back. Ok we have had our moments but luckily enough they have been away from home as we keep fortress Stamford Bridge in tact.

Let's not forget Petr Cech who has been fantastic (apart from the odd blip - West Ham) so far this season and has played his part in keeping this run going.

Also worth a mention in this run is Mikel. The defensive side to his game gets overlooked at times and is his position just in front of the back four that at times is just as important. He provides the cover to drop into the defensive line to make it even harder for sides to break us down.

With everyone returning soon to full fitness giving Carlo a selection headache in our back four things will only get better at the back for Carlo and for Chelsea and I just wonder:
Can we keep this run going at home all season?
