Strengths and weaknesses of Chelsea’s new number one Edouard Mendy

Chelsea has been enjoying a great summer transfer market as they spice the team with good qualities to race for the league title.

Kai Havert, Timo Werner, and Hakim Ziyech all improve the attack, whiles Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr, and Ben Chilwell strengthen the backline. The only problem was keeping the goal post save and now Edouard Mendy is in.

Mendy impressed in his debut campaign for Rennes. Admittedly, the coronavirus pandemic meant he was restricted to just 24 appearances as the Ligue 1 campaign was curtailed with 10 games to play, but Mendy played his part to ensure Rennes finished the season third.

Only Keylor Navas and Predrag Rajkojic (both 18) conceded fewer goals than Mendy (19) in France’s top tier and he played a key role in Rennes boasting one of the best defensive records in the league. Factors in a save success rate of 75.3% that’s the fourth-best in Ligue 1 last season and a return of 2.5 saves per 90, and its clear the shot-stopping side to Mendy’s game is one of his key strength.
