Case for defence

William Gallas took great satisfaction in keeping another clean sheet at Norwich.

William Gallas took great satisfaction in keeping another clean sheet at Norwich.

It was the sixth time we've kept the opposition at bay in 17 matches in the Premier League this season.

Indeed, since conceding eight goals in our opening two defeats against the Manchester teams, we've kept six clean sheets and conceded just 11 goals in 15 matches, losing only once in that time.

Norwich's dangerous front two Grant Holt and Steve Morison rarely threatened in our 2-0 win at Carrow Road as we consolidated third place.

"We played very well in defence, concentrated on what we had to do and kept the strikers quiet," reflected William, partnered by Younes Kaboul.

"That is real satisfaction for the defenders, when you don’t concede a goal. That’s very good for us.

"With my experience, I’m always wary about a game like that. Even if you score the first goal, you never know what can happen, so it was important to score the second, stay strong and that’s what we did. Everyone was happy."
