Chelsea FC: Evaluating the Blues' Defence and Possible Transfer Replacements

Chelsea's inglorious 5-3 defeat to London rivals Arsenal has finally exposed the No. 1 problem for manager André Villas-Boas—defence. 

There have been 15 goals conceded in 10 games. José Mourinho's 2004-05 team conceded 15 goals in 38 games. 

Regardless of Villas-Boas' insistence in playing a high line, the fact of the matter is that Chelsea's defence have made schoolboy errors. 

Why did Alex give the ball away against West Bromwich Albion? Where was the communication between Branislav Ivanović and Hilário? Who was marking Chris Smalling? How come Nani cut through Chelsea like a hot knife through butter?

This article will examine Petr Čech, José Bosingwa, John Terry, Branislav Ivanović, David Luiz and Ashley Cole. 

It will also propose necessary transfer replacements or replacements within the club.
