How These 3 Premier League Clubs Have Only Conceded One Goal After Five Games

In 50 games played in the 2021-22 Premier League season, 132 goals have been scored. Norwich, Newcastle United, and Leeds United have conceded a combined 39 goals.

But only one goal has been scored against each of these clubs, signifying their tight and solid defense, at least against Premier League clubs:

1. Chelsea

Chelsea has been the most impressive team this season. Thomas Tuchel is hoping to lead the team to more success than they achieved last season.

During the transfer window, Tuchel only added a striker to his team and missed out on Sevilla center-back, Jules Kounde. But Chelsea has proved that they have what it takes to compete as a top club in the league.

Only Manchester United has scored more goals than Chelsea in the league, and no club has conceded lesser. The only goal scored against Chelsea was a penalty scored by Mohamed Salah in their fixture against Liverpool.

2. Liverpool

Liverpool conceded 42 goals in the league last season, majorly due to the absence of Virgil Van Dijk. The Netherlands captain is now back, and the clean sheets are back.

Whether Virgil partnered with Joel Matip or new signing Ibrahima Konate, Liverpool fans have felt safe with good security provided for the Reds goalkeeper Alisson.

Liverpool conceded their only goal against fellow table-toppers Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, scored by Kai Havertz.

3. Manchester City

Ruben Dias won the Premier League Player of the Season award last season after helping Man City to a league title win.

Dias has featured in all of City's five games this season, with only a Son Heung-min-goal conceded against Tottenham.

Man City's defense is intact, but they may need some help up front. They couldn't score a goal in two of their games, against Tottenham and Southampton. However, they scored heavily against Arsenal and Norwich, five goals each.
