Chelsea have looked better and better defensively since Edouard Mendy came into the side, and he made a couple of vital interventions today.
He recovered from an early mistake to play a really solid game for his team, including a late save from Marcus Rashford that one could easily imagine flying past Kepa in the equivalent situation.
One man who was ready to praise the Senegal keeper right away was Didier Drogba. He took to Twitter to congratulate Mendy on a “solid performance”.
We love the idea that DD is at home somewhere watching the Blues every week. He’s spot on to back Mendy too.
The early mistake will have hit his confidence a little, but after that he went on to play a really solid game, and keep a third clean sheet in four games for his new club.
The guy already looked like a great purchase, and Didier knows it.
