Despite only having a third of his appearances compared to Kepa Arrizabalaga, goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has kept a clean sheet equal to his colleague.
Chelsea just had two unforgettable defeats against Everton and Wolves. Therefore, football experts say that the Blues will bring in great psychological pressure when entering the London Derby against West Ham in the 14th round of the Premier League this morning. However, the Stamford Bridge team has proved their bravery when they excellently beat Hammers 3-0 to reach 5th place in the standings.
This is the 11th clean sheet match in all competitions of the green shirt team this season. Notably, there are 10 games of which the keeper of the Blues goal is rookie goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. Willy Caballero was on the remaining match player.
According to statistics, Mendy has played a total of 16 matches for Chelsea since the beginning of the season and has 10 games to keep clean sheets. Meanwhile, the world’s most expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga needs 45 games to achieve a similar achievement to the Senegal nationality guard.
Live football viewers also objectively assessed that Mendy achieved this achievement because Chelsea had a much better quality defense than last season. In fact, it’s undeniable that Mendy has often made more mistakes in recent Chelsea matches. However, in general, Lille’s former goalkeeper still creates more peace of mind than Kepa.
Before the match between Chelsea and West Ham, legendary Gary Neville shared on Sky Sports expressed concern with Mendy. He argued that the confidence behind his impressive streak could make Mendy lose focus and make mistakes more easily. However, Chelsea’s No. 1 goalkeeper proved the opposite when he played very firmly and helped Chelsea preserve the net against the opponent.
