described as "not the cleanest sheet we ever had".

"It was pretty much Hell on Earth for the last 20 minutes but we did well,"

Chilwell said

"I think we've got Edou to thank. In the last 25 minutes he was superb. He's amazing. We see it every day in training, but he's getting the credit he deserves in these sorts of games where he makes the big saves and gets us the three points in the end."

Chelsea went to the top of the Premier League with 19 points from eight games, just the start they were seeking as they attempt to follow up last season's Champions League triumph with a strong domestic campaign.
