So between Cahill, Terry and Azpilicueta, they cost 14m total.

Ray Wilkins: Chelsea's defence can win them Champions League:
Chelsea legend Ray Wilkins believes the Blues' 'exceptional' defence gives them a good chance of winning this season's Champions League
http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11667/9260131/ray-wilkins-says-chelseas-defence-can-win-them-champions-league

"I give them a massive chance because they look to be the only team left in the competition that can keep a clean sheet."

"I watched the Barcelona-Atletico game and there were chances galore. It was very similar in the other match as well so Chelsea with their defensive set-up have as good a chance as anybody."

"They have a defensive quality that is exceptional. Okay, the strikers haven't functioned as Jose would have liked them to, but in the midfield section they have so much creativity and goals."

And conceded 8 against Stoke and Sunderland  :facepalm: 

Seriously, I'm really impressed by our defence this season, they went from being our weakest point under AVB to our strongest despite having the same men bar Azpi
Spoiler:
and possibly the best defence in Europe.

Cole and Terry showed that they can still perform at a high level for a good 1/2 seasons and their contracts should be renewed imo.

Cesar Azpilicueta urges Chelsea to tighten up defence after 6-3 win at Everton:
Full-back Cesar Azpilicueta has urged Chelsea to tighten up at the back after shipping 3 goals against Everton in order to continue their fine start to the Premier League season
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2739410/Cesar-Azpilicueta-urges-Chelsea-tighten-defence-6-3-win-Everton.html

'We scored a lot of goals but we conceded a lot as well, and as defenders we are not happy, but at least at the end we got the three points. We are scoring more goals but we are conceding more goals from last year."
-

"As a defender I don't like to concede but I think we are playing better football collectively. I'd prefer to win 1-0."

I should hope so. Otherwise we'll be checking Mourinho into the cardiac ward Laughing

Mourinho on the state of our defending:
-

"I don't like [conceding], but we were analysing the goals against Everton and trying to identify the mistakes and we'll do the same thing with these two goals."

"If you score more goals than the opponent you win, but you want to be more consistent behind because it's not possible to always score four, five, six or three."

"There will come a time when we need a point and a 0-0 is a point or we need a victory and 1-0 is also a victory."

I think we can.

Courtois
Ivanovic Cahill Terry Azpilicueta
Matic
Fabregas Oscar/Ramires
Willian Costa Hazard

Let the midfield play very deep with fabregas being helped by Willian, Oscar or Ramires can help Dave, allowing Hazard a bit more freedom.

that, playing a counter attacking style would very much do the job, 0 all or 1 0 win, City do not look that good, having only managed a draw with a (imo) sub-par Arsenal Side.

Yes but they also missed several gilt-edged chances at the end to win it. (Though Arsenal did miss a few chances of their own)

Arsenal's defence was shocking, a better defence would deny them that.

Do you know if Yaya will be back?

I believe it was said he was only not in the starting line-up because he arrived back from International duty so late.


So I suppose he'll probably be back Mad

Yaya didn't even feature, thought he might have been injured.

Tactics will be as important as personnel. José got his spot on last season, and so long as he alters the 'outscore you' mentality we've thrived on thus far this term, I think we could be alright. As you said, City are far from at their best as yet.
