Quality Defense: Mohamed Salah and Gabriel Jesus are the only players to have scored against Chelsea this Season

Chelsea suffered their first defeat of 2021/22 Campaign on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. The Blues hosted Manchester City at home in their sixth League outing this campaign which unfortunately resulted in a defeat.

Going into the Match, Chelsea were in an impressive form. They have won 6 out of 7 Matches they have played prior to the clash with Manchester City and they have only recorded a draw which came against Liverpool.

City have also been quite impressive this season having thrashed RB Liepzig 6-3 in their first UEFA Champions League encounter and being held to an embarrassing draw at the Etihad Stadium by Southampton in their last League game.

The Match was just another League Match but another defeat to Manchester City would be giving Pep Guardiola a nickname that he won't fancy. Thomas Tuchel and Pep Guardiola met three times last season in which the Blues emerged the Winner in all three encounters.

One thing that Chelsea Fans needs to understand is that the defeat was bound to come sooner or later, and it's good that Chelsea lost to Manchester City. The Blues have now faced 4 out of the Premier League's Big 6 clubs.

They have played against Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester City. From here on out, it should be an easy ride for Thomas Tuchel and his Chelsea contingent. A ride that will take them to the summit of the English premier league table.

Some guys at the viewing centre where I watched the Match on Saturday afternoon were arguing about the outcome of the result. One of them was telling the other that Chelsea actually deserve to lose the Match because the team lack cohesion and rhythm at the Midfield. They also gave away the possession easily. Of course, the other guy replied him. He said: "How do you expect me to be calm about a defeat when I'm not Arsenal Fan?"

In a comical yet factual manner, I told him that Chelsea has been actually good defensively this campaign. I mean they have played against some of the top clubs in EPL and they have just conceded just two goals. One of those two goals was from a penalty kick and they have conceded just a goal from open play. There's Arsenal that shipped in a whopping 5 goals against Manchester City in a Match.

If it's any consolation, the two goals that Chelsea has conceded this season came from Mohamed and Jesus. Apparently, Chelsea Defense is so good that teams now require special intervention to break it. Very funny, right?

Calm down Chelsea Fans, we've overcome the difficult opponents. It can only get better from here on out. Even Liverpool that has one of the best Defense in the league have failed the hard test. The Reds have conceded just one goal in their last 5 league Matches and then, they conceded 3 goals against Brentford in their last League game.
