Mendy Shows Quality As Chelsea Frustrated In Home Draw With Sevilla

Posted by

After “showing his consistency” again in his side’s goalless Champions League draw with Sevilla, Edouard Mendy has confirmed himself as Chelsea’s first-choice goalkeeper, says boss Frank Lampard.

Mendy, who joined in September from Rennes, created an outstanding save to help the Blues start their European campaign with a hard-earned point against Seville’s Europa League holders. The Senegal international marked his return from injury by clawing away Nemanja Gudelj’s header after it had flicked off Kurt Zouma in a game of few clear-cut chances.

Asked if Mendy is already Chelsea’s number one, Lampard said: “Yeah, at the moment. He’s shown his consistency. Chelsea heads to Russia next Wednesday to face Krasnodar with all four teams on one point with Group E rivals Rennes held 1-1 in France.”
