CHELSEA 0-0 Sevilla: Sorry Kepa, Mendy is now Lampard’s Main Goalkeeper!

TRIBUNJOGJA.COM – Frank Lampard admits Edouard Mendy has become Chelsea’s first choice goalkeeper at this time.

The former Rennes keeper helped the Blues secure Lampard’s first goalless draw as Chelsea coach in Wednesday’s 0-0 Champions League draw against Sevilla.

Meanwhile, Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has made blunders in three games, sat on the bench as the west London club battled in the first leg of the group stage.

Senegalese goalkeeper Mendy has recovered from a thigh problem to start his Group E opener at Stamford Bridge, which has delighted Lampard with his stronger side.

Mendy’s surprising skill in that match has indeed proven that Chelsea have found the perfect goalkeeper for them.

The 28-year-old recorded his second clean sheet in a row for The Blues, quoted from Football.London.

For the second game in a row, Edouard Mendy kept a clean sheet for Chelsea.

They rarely featured for the Blues under Frank Lampard, and the 0-0 draw against Sevilla was his first goalless draw as head coach.

With Kepa’s disappointing performance, having stability in defense is a big support for Lampard and their fans.

Although there is no doubt that Thiago Silva’s return to the starting XI is also very helpful in securing important Champions League points.
