Edouard Mendy’s brilliant form for the club continued on Saturday afternoon in Blues 2-0 win over Newcastle United, with production of solid impression at the hearts of Chelsea back-line.
Mendy, 28, joined the Blues in a £22million deal from Rennes in the summer transfer window and is already equalling clean sheet record in the early stages of his Chelsea career.
The Senegal international has conceded just two goal in his first nine appearances in a Chelsea shirt. With Mendy in-between the sticks, Frank Lampard’s side have kept five clean sheets in a row for the first time since 2010.
He also become the first Chelsea goalkeeper to kick off his Premier League career with three shutouts since club icon Petr Cech in 2004.
After conceded a goal in Blues 4-1 win over Sheffield United before the international break, Mendy has return to action with a big impression in his last three appearances for his club and country.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper return to clean sheet form as yet to conceded a goal in his last three appearances, his latest one was Saturday’s Chelsea 2-0 win over Newcastle United.
