Blues defence sets new record

Last updated : 26 October 2003 By Brian Cartlidge

The Blues' 8th clean sheet from the first 10 league games played betters the previous record of 7 from 10 set by local rivals Aston Villa in season 1998-99.

Blues have conceded just 5 goals total in those 10 games - 2 in the home game with Fulham and three at Old Trafford against Manchester Utd.
