Chelsea fans appear to be in total agreement with Frank Lampard’s recent comments regarding the club’s inability to keep a clean sheet this season.
On our search for a clean sheet, Frank explains that collective and individual errors have been costing us, as well as set-piece goals. However, he says winning games is more important than clean sheets for him.#CHEBHA

The Blues legend, who was speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of their Premier League contest with Brighton and Hove Albion at the weekend, admitted that mistakes ranging from individuals and collectively as a team were becoming a problem. However, he insisted that picking up all three points was more important at the moment than keeping the ball out of the back of their net.
Indeed, Chelsea have struggled to keep the opposition from finding the target this season, as they have failed to keep a side from scoring in each of their nine games so far (Transfermarkt).
The Blues, in fact, have one of the worst records in the Premier League defensively at the moment as well, as they currently rank third in most goals conceded, with Kepa Arrizabalaga conceding 13 times in the top-flight.
However, fans appear to be echoing Lampard’s current thought process and seem to be in full support of the manager, believing that it should be just a matter of time before that first clean sheet is kept.
Here are just some of their reactions…
clean sheet or dirty sheet, just win with any sheet. that’s all that matters now

I agree! Let’s secure wins first then worry about clean sheets.

We need to stack those wins first.
Well said Lampsy

Yeah. Clean sheets will come when we keep winning and strike a balance between the defense and attacking phases.
